Batik and Wax-Resist Fabric Dyeing


Traditional Batik, a decorative art form from the island of Java, uses wax as a dye resist. The artisan draws a pattern directly on fabric with melted wax. The wax creates resist patterns where dye is not absorbed. With wax-resist Batik, use a cold-water dye such as Procion MX Fiber Reactive Cold Water Dye.
