Sage Under the Moonlight Handmade Batik Dress
Sage Under the Moonlight Handmade Batik Dress - size Large
The color is a hand dyed, soft sage under varying tones of blue teal. I painted the entire design with molten beeswax, and hand dyed each layer of color. As a final step in the batik process, I boiled the dress clean in a cauldron of soapy water to remove the beeswax and reveal the batik artwork underneath the painted layers. The design becomes a permanent part of the fabric itself. The soft texture of this natural fabric is not altered with batik process.
This batik dress will not shrink or change color. The fabric can stretch gently over the course of the day, and return to its natural shape after washing.
Recommend care: Machine wash cold and tumble dry in low settings. Do not hand wash or hang dry, if at all possible. The finished batik does not favor being wet, but will last for many years with basic care.
