How Batik Is Made

Batik is a wax-resistant colouring method applied to whole cloth or cloth made using this technique when came from Indonesia.

Batik is either produced by drawing the resisting dots and lines with a spouted instrument called a tjanting, or by printing a copper stamped resistor called a cap.

The wax applied resists colouring and thus allows the craftsman to selectively soak the tissue in one colour, removing the wax with boiling water and repeat if multiple colours are desired
