When it was raining the other day, I had the urge to create batik rain. And today I am doing some more eco wax batik. I have been doing natural batik for about a year now and love it.
The bees are not such a problem when the weather is cooler.
In summer, the smell of the hot bees wax brings the bees from everywhere.
I have another blog specifically for ECO WAX BATIK. Have been thinking about a special place for batik for a while now. And decided it really needs its own place.
Batik is not new, it has been around for a long long time. Years ago it was made with natural bees wax and vegetation dyes. And more recently it has been created with synthetic dyes, and lots of chemicals. This blog is about reviving an ancient technique and bringing it into our more modern art.
Its a place to record information, ideas, and to network with others.
This ECO WAX BATIK blog is a place where we can share knowledge and ideas about natural batik. While also showing respect each others individual designs and techniques.
So this blog is a place to share stories and developments about bees wax, local vegetation dyes, scraps and fragments of materials, and designs.
I hope that you can join me here.
