We include here the Batik Explorer Pack and a number of dye kits which include instructions and dyestuff for dyeing with Indigo and fibre reactive Procion MX Dyes.
Batik involves applying a pattern or image with a stamp, brush or tjanting using melted wax to fabric or paper. The wax works as a resist preventing the waxed area from absorbing paint or dye. Layers can be built up using different colours to create complex patterning.
The thermostatically controlled Tixor Wax Melting Pot is highly recommended as a safe method for melting wax for batik. Alternatively, the Cold Liquid Wax can be used direct from the pot. The full range of Batik tools and materials can be found in the Crafts section under Dyeing
