Rice Paper Batik Class

Place:  Tessera Fine Art Gallery, 412 E. Douglas, Wichita,  KS
Time and Date:  9:00 am to 3:00 pm, Friday, November, 14, 2014
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.
