About this artwork
What is Batik?
Batik is a traditional Asian art that involves painting with melted wax using a tjanting, a special tool similar to a fountain pen, onto cloth, then dyeing the material. The covered areas resist the dye except where the hardened wax has cracked, producing the crackled, spider web effect which is characteristic of batik. The waxing and dyeing can be repeated as many times as necessary to achieve multiple colors and more varied designs. Or the wax can be completely removed and reapplied in different areas to get an even broader spectrum of colors.
The final process is removing the wax from the material. This can be done by ironing the fabric between newspaper or repeatedly rinsing it in boiling water -- over and over and over... The end result is a colorful and unique creation.
