Two-layer Batiks (a freebie overview)
Your quick-start guide to understanding the multi-layer batik process, start to finish!
Enjoy this free mini-course! In it, you'll watch me take a cotton tapestry (wall hanging) through all the phases of being batiked. See the stages of:
1. Rendering the design in hot wax (first drawn in washable marker)
2. Dyeing the first layer (the under layer) red
3. Adding more wax onto the areas I wish to keep red, furthering the design
4. Dyeing the final piece dark blue
5. Boiling out the wax
If you didn't quite "get" batik before, this should help immensely!
