What is Watercolor Batik?
Traditional batik is done on fabric, uses a hot wax resist, and then a process of sun- dying and fabric dyes to get the unique look. I like to call what I'm doing watercolor batik. I use traditional rice papers instead of fabric, a hot wax resist and non traditional tools, and instead of fabric dye I use water media pigments, permanent pens, and even acrylic paints. Layers of paint, and wax combine to create the unique look of watercolor batik.
