Acrylic batik is a fun, somewhat unpredictable medium using acrylic washes on rice paper with wax as a resist.
You begin by transferring your drawing onto rice paper using a water-proof pen such as Micron 05 or 08. The next step is to wax out any areas you want to keep white - then you are ready for the first thin wash. When that is dry, wax out any area you want to remain that color, and repeat using another color wash. Working from light to dark, apply the wax to block further layers of paint until the entire surface is waxed. When your surface is completely coated, crumple the entire painting, spread it out and wash a final color (I generally use a mid to dark blue but any color could be used). Before that wash dries, apply a final wax coating over the entire piece. Then the wax is melted off using an iron set to ‘cotton’ (between layers of newspaper) to reveal your creation. The results are surprising at times and always exciting!
