Batik is a traditional technique that uses Resist to prevent dye from reaching the fabric. You can use this method to create detailed patterns on textiles, wood and unglazed ceramics. With specially formulated Inkodye you get to use the power of the sun to develop the full vibrance of your colors and make them permanent, no other steaming or fixing is required!
Decide how to apply the resist. We used fine line applicators, also try brushes, stencils and sponges.
Choose your design. We printed out an illustration to use as an underlay, if you’re brave try freehand!
Flatten your work surface. We used a mild spray adhesive, you can also use stretcher frames.
Apply Resist. Try not to smudge your work as you go! Fine lines dry to the touch in minutes.
Finishing touches. Check your work for gaps, dye will bleed through gaps in lines. Sign your work!
