Instructor: Jan Butler, BA
Class Fee: $25
This class is designed to teach the technique of rice paper batik. Permanent ink pens and watercolor are used to create a design working from light to dark values. Melted wax is applied as a resist to “save” completed areas of the painting. Please bring photos and ideas for your painting. Designs with large color masses and little detail work best. It’s fun to use a drawing of something you have painted in another media and see the results in batik. Wax and 12” x 18”sheet of rice paper are furnished.
Bring these supplies: watercolor paints, a permanent black ink pen with a .01 or .03 tip such as Zig Millennium or Micron Pigma, paper towels, a round watercolor brush size 6 to 12, and a water basin.
