EXPLORING BATIK AND WATERCOLOR

Date changed for BATIK WORKSHOP. If you love the look of batik and want to learn to create that fascinating effect using watercolors, check out this 2 day workshop. It will be held in my studio near Cincinnati on November 13 and 14. (Dates were changed from Septemeber.)

Posted below are several of my paintings done with this fascinating and ancient process. We'll be using hot paraffin, rice papers, regular watercolor paints, and sumi ink. Every artist will be painting their own original works of art, using special techniques to create their one-of-a-kind batiks.

Cost is $150 and includes two very full days of instruction as well as the use of melting pots, hot wax, and an assortment of tools. Contact me at sandymaudlin@gmail.com for more info. Do hope you can join us.

These are wonderful Sandy, what an amazing technique. I wish we had someone running this sort of workshop in the UK. Maybe you should go on a world tour? :-)

Gorgeous! I wish I lived close enough to take your workshop. I teach elementary art, and did a version of imitation batik with my kiddos using a resist of toothpaste mixed with AloeVera lotion. If you want to see them, check out older post at my blog There's a Dragon in my Art Room at http://plbrown.blogspot.com/

All previous visitors have said all I wish. World tour sounds wonderful, don't miss out dear old England (especially East Anglia) . I'd love to attend your workshops and learn this technique from you. Jaw dropping everyone of them.
