There are clear step-by-step instructions for projects such as a cotton sarong, a cushion cover and a cosmetic bag. The versatility of batik has led many designers to develop this traditional craft, with innovative and original results. The basic equipment and materials such as papers, fabrics and dyes are outlined in this book, which also explores the various methods of resist dyeing in both classical and contemporary projects. Techniques include making a basic frame, pinning the fabric to it, using a dye bath and direct dyeing. Effects such as cracking, canting and ragging are also shown. Batik designs can range from extremely simple to the very complicated, and each design is unique owing to the technique of resist dyeing. This book provides informative instruction for newcomers to the craft, and will inspire more experienced batik artists to experiment by working with different materials, such as paper and wood, as well as textiles. There are over 20 stunning projects to try yourself, including a silk square scarf, a paper pastel blind, a batik screen, a picture frame and a cotton sarong. A gallery of contemporary designers' work provides further inspiration for the dyeing enthusiast.
