Enrol in Batik Resists on Asian & Watercolour Papers
Course Code: ARTS1147
Apply golden hot beeswax to beautiful Asian and watercolour papers using cord-covered wooden block stamps, a variety of brushes - from wide to skinny, traditional Indonesian hot wax drawing tools, and Javanese wooden carved patterned stamps. Paint and layer colours on the paper, using acrylic paint washes and transparent watercolours, while the wax resists your washes. The wax will be then be ironed between newsprint layers and lifted out. Remarkable designs and unexpected results will remain and can be cut, torn or left as is to create abstract landscape collages, book covers, paper quilts, and creative explorations. Learn about design, composition, colour mixing, and a host of collage techniques. Experiment, work from intuition, and delight in the beauty of risk-taking as you explore your personal style and achieve surprising effects. Instruction is suitable for beginners and experienced artists in this supportive opportunity for exploration of a variety of materials.
