Batik on cotton fabric
Forest in the fall, when it is time to let go and prepare to renew from the inside out.
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. After each color is applied, it is coverd with wax, and the next color then applied. This process is repeated over and over until the whole piece is painted.
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.
