This is an interesting stage of the batik process.Whilst the wax layer obscures the detail of the image it does literally add another layer of interest.
A new Batik has reached an interesting stage.All of the coloured dyes have been applied.The wax resist is complete and the darkest colour added by pushing the painting through a bowl of dye.
The next stage is to remove the wax layer by sandwiching the fabric with kitchen roll and then ironing with a hot iron so that the wax melts and is absorbed by the kitchen roll.
