What Is Batik? Magical Fiber Art Process Using Beeswax - Let's Paint Dresses May 26 2019, 0 Comments

What is batik?  It's a magical fiber art process using beeswax to paint designs on fabric.  Yes, it is magical, as the best wax resist to use for batik is beeswax, provided to us by nature, and anything provided to us by nature is indeed magical. 

Today we are painting a new dress design.  This is the first step in this ancient fiber art technique, with many more steps to come.  By the time the dresses are finished, they will be a totally different color.  Stay tuned to see the progress.  Once finished, these sweet summer boho dresses will be posted for sale online.

Isn't this beautiful?  A customer sent me this pic.  She's wore her dress while tracing her roots back to Corvo Island.  Have you heard of this place?  It's beautiful!!!  I looked it up, it's part of Portugal.

 

Here is another customer having a lot of fun in her dress while in Maui.  

Here is another customer who sent me this pic after he bought his new favorite hoodie.

He seems pretty happy with it.  I think he's in Texas, but I can't remember.  Anyway, he looks handsome.  

This lovely customer sent me this pic enjoying her dress at a concert in Brooklyn, at the new Coney Island Boardwalk amphitheater.  Another incredibly unique piece she just found in the collection.  The other side is an amazing tree - I'll post the link of the actual dress here.  She said so many people stopped and asked her about the dress.

Thanks so much for sending me this pic, Susan!!

And check out how much fun Rachael is having in her eco-fleece top. ❤︎

Here is her top from the site.

Here's a recent screencap from a very well received Facebook post shared to the Batikwalla fan page from Lana and her extremely talented mom, who made this amazing quilt with the batik fabric prints in the Art and Prints section. 

From Heather, so happy with her blue leggings for a poolside yoga session.  Amazing strength, Heather!  Thank you for the photos.  

Here's a pic from Leslie playing with Curley Taylor and the Zydeco Trouble from Sunset, Louisiana at the Gator By The Bay Festival.  She's playing at the Waterfront Blues Festival in Portland soon and promises to get more pics of her performing on stage in her Batikwalla dress.   Thank you Leslie!  It's an honor 💗

Check out Sienna Rose sending her Batikwalla pic all the way from Ecuador!  Looks like you are having tons of fun!!!  I wanna go too!!

 So if anyone else wants to send me your pics enjoying your new batik piece, please do!  I'll post them here.  And please tell me where you are as it adds to the fun and adventure.
