This wonderful old stamp for wax and other media is handmade in Central Java of fine copper strips, carefully cut, shaped and soldered into fabulous patterns. It has its original handle on the back.
They are used by Batik artists in Java by dipping them into hot wax, shaking off the excess, and then stamping the wax onto the cloth. Aligning the edges of each consecutive stamp creates patterns which run the length and width of the fabric.
These will make great gifts, both for the collector or the batik or stamping artist in your family. They are also fantastic to collect, as they are works of art in and of themselves and are so wonderful just to look at.
✧ measurements ✧ • size : 8 -5/8 x 8-1/4 x 1-1/2" (21.9 x 20.9 x 3.8cm) • weight : 4lbs (1.8kg)
Remember ; as these are vintage tjaps and have previously been used for intended purposes ie fabric printing, there will be some expected sign of previous use -- they are however in excellent and robust condition ready for many more years of use or as a beautiful display item.
Check out the link below for web video of Batik printing using batik tjap ! It is a great example of what you can do with a single Tjap, easily creating borders, patterns, and complex batiks in seconds instead of days! The link is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xYZuSqAEH5s
