Batik Blockprinting has a process that involves using wax as a resist material. The wax is heated, and printed using a carved wooden block on a plain piece of cloth. The cloth is left to dry and the wax hardens. Afterwards, it is dyed in color. The effect produced is a veinlike quality that creates intricate, thin web-like patterns across the cloth. The printing, washing, and dyeing process is repeated several times in order to acheive a multiple colored fabric.
