FamilyTreeFinal

I recently finished a very special project for my clients who were celebrating the birth of their 2nd grandchild. Here is their testimonial below: 
 
“When each of our grandchildren were born, my husband and I wrote a family history with stories of 5 generations of relatives with photographs, as a way of welcoming the newest member to the family. Adria assembled all this information into beautiful books and created a family tree which is a work of art, hanging in our home. Adria showed great attention to detail, made creative suggestions, and worked closely with me so that the finished products are exactly what I wanted, and are cherished by my family.”

FEATURED TECHNIQUE: BATIK

A BRIEF HISTORY
Did you know that batik has been in existence for close to 2000 years? Its origins can be found in the far east in countries such as Indonesia, India, China and Malaysia.
TOOLS FOR BATIK DESIGN

Batik is made either by drawing dots and lines of the resist with a spouted tool called a canting, also spelled tjanting, by printing the resist with a copper stamp called a cap or using a brush. This technique, of manual wax-resist dyeing, may be applied to whole cloth or to parts of a cloth. 

 
BATIK DYEING
The applied wax resists dyes and therefore allows the artisan to add additional colors by soaking the cloth in different dye baths or applying color with a brush. This process of waxing and dyeing can be repeated to create more detailed designs and imagery. Removing the wax can be a multi-step process. Use boiling water and immerse the fabric into a pot to melt away the wax off of the cloth. You may re-use the wax by allowing the pot to cool and take the wax off of the top. Any remnants of wax on the cloth may be ironed off by putting newspaper over the cloth to absorb the remaining wax.
