    Batik painting with beeswax

    Batik is a common technique among tribal groups to decorate fabrics. The artisans will use molten beeswax to draw on a fabric surface following the designed pattern. The fabric then will be colored into cool dye and finally boiled in boiling water. Beeswax will be melted in hot water and reveal the covered pattern. Though sound simple, batik painting requires a lot of practice and skills to master.
