Lundy Inspired Batik (Part I)
Posted on May 11, 2016 | By cbutlerwoolsery | 2 responses
On Friday, Ashmansworthy class will be using the batik printing process to create images inspired by animals found on and around Lundy Island. The first step is to produce a simple image which can then be “drawn” onto a piece of fabric using hot wax and a tjanting tool. After the wax has dried, the colour is applied using a dye called Brusho. Finally, the wax is removed by placing the fabric between sheets of absorbent paper using a hot iron.
