FEEDING TIME !! ~AN ORIGINAL FINE ART BATIK on CANVAS by M BALDWIN


FINE ART BATIK ~ CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION

Fine Art Batik Explained ....

Batik can be created on many surfaces, usually cloth, but I prefer the more controlled outcome of paper substrate or a new product for artists, watercolor canvas.

Generally an artist will have a clear image in mind, subject matter and composition. This is of course, unless, the abstract version is the goal. Given a subject such as a rooster or a flower... the process would involve a small sketch of the subjects. Then beeswax is heated to a very high temperature. There are small needles used to apply the wax, working in reverse, such as anything that the artist wants to highlight, or keep white from the paper, that is where the wax is applied in small strokes, dots, patterns or long flowing lines. Then watercolor is applied to the surface of the paper or canvas covering the whole area, including the wax. The next step is to apply another layer of beeswax to the areas the artist wishes to keep the color of the first application of watercolor.

It is a long process and if you look at each Batik, you will see about 10 watercolor layers or more. Each layer was done individually. By the time the wax and watercolor layers are complete, the whole surface of the painting is covered in wax. It may take up to a few days to complete this stage of the painting.

The FUN part for the artist and the SURPRISE ending is when the wax is removed, REVEALING a truly unique and one of a kind painting. It is a lovely experience and I am so happy to share it with you.
