African Batik’s & Wax Prints --Wax Painted Fabrics from Africa
Batik (Wax Painting) is a technique that has been practiced in many parts of the world for centuries. The basic method is the resist dye technique. Melted wax is applied to the fabric to form a pattern. The fabric is then dyed either by hand or in a dye bath. This same process is repeated over and over applying wax and dying until the final pattern or picture is complete. Eventually the fabric is placed between sheets of paper and ironed to remove the wax.
