Indonesian Batik is created by dipping a stamp (made of metal or carved wood) into hot wax, then the stamp is applied onto the cloth into a repetitive pattern. The table is first coated with a kind of wet waxed paper so the hot wax won’t attach to it. After applying the wax, the fabric is soaked into water and then into the dye. The color develops on the sun. The fabric is ready to be de-waxed into boiling water.
