Each piece approximately 21” x 10”

Cotton cloth with wax still intact

Very good condition

 

These samples show five steps in the wax batik process. Each piece of cloth still retains the wax as applied in that particular step. The wax has not been scraped off the final sample.

These pieces give a real hands-on feeling of the different dyeing stages that can often be hard to discern from photographs.

A booklet is also offered on my website (under BAZAAR – RARE & VINTAGE BOOKS) that explains the process step by step and also includes actual batik samples.
