Summary

Rosi Robinson shows how to create beautiful batik designs and pictures, teaching all the techniques required through 9 gorgeous projects. From making simple marks and drawing with wax to dipping and painting with dyes, etching cracking, discharging and more, this book contains all you need to create beautiful batik. A history of batik sets the scene and then there is detailed advice on all the materials and preparations required to get started. There is also artistic advice on using color. We then learn how to use hard wax, stamps and brushes through a series of appealing projects. Etching, cracking, discharging and using cantings are taught in the same way, building skills with each project, with templates provided wherever needed. A gallery of beautiful batik artworks provides even more inspiration for beginners and experienced artists alike.
