I’ve seen some nice batik but the process and beautiful batik in Malaysia was quite amazing. We got to see them hand draw the patterns.
Batik is made using a process with hot wax and layers of color. It can be done using patterns too but it’s more wonderful to see the hand drawn art.
Once the wax outlines are done, the color can be applied with what looked to my untrained eye as precise impreciseness. Very lovely.
And the results are…well i’m running out of new adjectives. It’s just beautiful batik.
