Today I took a Batik lesson from the art teacher at the UAACC. The first picture is one of his pieces that I bought.
Here is what I learned in my lesson with pictures for you to follow along. Max, the teacher, drew the outline for the piece for me. Then we used some water based paints and a sponge to color in the background.
We then added black paint with a sponge. It was pretty hard to use a sponge to color in some of the detailed areas. It was also hard to use the paintbrushes with the wax to perfectly outline the subject area. Anyways, once that is all done we let the piece dry out again.
Here are some pictures of the Art Studio and Gallery.
