Making : Your Own Batik Drawings

30 November 2012No Comment


Anya came up to me the other day with this.

A batik drawing she made on her own.

(Which I thought was really nice =)

Then she told me how she made it.

Here’s how : 

–  Draw on a piece of used brown envelope

– Colour her drawings with coloured pencils

– Crumple the paper

– Flatten the paper using a ruler

– Dip the paper in water for a few minutes

– Hang it dry

And that is it! =D

(Nice to see how she also used a recycled envelope for her little project too)

And btw, this is what Vai and I did sometime back, when we made our ‘CRAYON BATIK’.

Happy crafting, everyone … and have a great weekend too!
