I got an amazing comment from Phyl I used to do crayon batik every year when I taught 7th and 8th graders. It was one of my favorite things to do.
We also did some 'authentic' batiks with clear wax and multiple dye baths. Anyhow, your results are absolutely lovely. I did a few things a little differently when I did batik with my classes.
First of all, we put our wax in muffin tins floating in electric fry pans - that way you don't have to worry about cracking glass. We used some paraffin and then added crayon color. The paraffin crackles quite nicely, and extends the crayon color so you don't need to use quite so many crayons.
We also had a couple of wax melter units that could be used for smaller amounts of wax. For fabric, to save money we used old white sheets. The whiter the fabric, the brighter the results. We did not use Rit Dye, because at the time they did not have cold water dyes. I recall using Procion cold water dyes - the colors were very vivid.
If you add water to dye, it cannot be warm! We ironed between newspaper, and used a LOT of newspaper to get out all the wax for a whole class of students. I would be concerned that all the colored wax of the crayons could really ruin a dry mount press.
I had an old iron that was just designated for wax stuff. Tomorrow I will post another class we had making jewelery with metal and resin by Mrs.
Mary Tavares and Stephanie Walton!! Batiks origins can be traced back to Asia, India and Africa. Some say the word is of Malay roots and translates "to write" or "to dot".
Batik is an art medium and methodology for creating design, usually on cloth, by applying wax to portions of the material and then dyeing it, then removing the wax.
This can be done to make vibrant colors and incredible designs. Batik is said to be an ancient art that has been handed down for thousands of years. Although the exact origins of batik are unknown, it is most common on the island of Java, Indonesia.
It is known when the art of batik was first practiced in Java, batik belonged only to royalty and families of wealth and position. It was a hobby for the royal woman. Aristocrats and royalty had certain designs identifying a family, social status or geographical location on the island.
Many of these designs have survived to this day. Today it is believed that certain patterns have special meanings and are thought to bring the wearer good luck, wealth, prosperity, health, etc. We hope it brings you good luck and prosperity when you wear your sarong from 1 World Sarongs.
It has become a skill and art of many great cultures. Today it is worn world wide by men and women, and can be seen almost anywhere. Artists typically decorate their batik fabrics in any way they are inspired.
Because the art is becoming more and more popular there are lots more resources for the artists. This is yielding many types of designs, colors, and patterns.
Batik is being used to make many different items some of which you'll find on 1 World Sarongs.
Mainly clothing and sarongs, but if you go to our Indonesian Art page and look under Masks you'll find batik is being used as well.
