The Batik Process

Batik is a sensual and organic process. A molten mixture of beeswax and paraffin is applied to fabric to resist dyes. Layers of wax and dyes are alternately applied by brush or immersion until the painting is complete. The wax is removed by placing the fabric between layers of paper and ironing repeatedly. The wax melts out into the paper. My paintings often require thirty or more layers of wax and dye.
