The watercolour batik process continues to fascinate me! This process combines elements of printmaking with the ancient art of batik.

I am excited to share with you how I turn the richly textured Ginwashi paper into beautiful images by building up layers of wax and watercolour. Once the final darks are added the wax is ironed off and I experience the excitement of finally seeing the work clearly!
