Sometimes we need to dive into the deep parts of darkness despite our own fears and insecurities, just to discover that even in these uncomfortable places, there is unexpected beauty
This batik was made on 100% cotton fabric and painted with fiber resist dyes, beeswax and paraffin. Fiber resist dyes from long lasting bonds with the fibers in the fabric and become an integral part of the fabric. The final step in batik paiting is cracking. The whole piece is covered with a mix of beeswax and parafin, then crumpled and a contrasting dye is applied to the breaks in the parafin. Then all the wax is removed with heat. Cracking adds a level of complexity and gives an unpredictable twist to the original design.
