Product Description

A substantial kit, containing enough materials to batik in the traditional method of tub dyeing successive layers of color and wax, and also the method of painting dye on to get color in specific areas before waxing, then tub dyeing another color at the end.

If you want to also check our batik books, Creative Batik, also by Rosi Robinson, is very very thorough with lots of eye candy, and Tie-dye to Die For & Batik You Can't Resist by Jacquard, is a less expensive book with a small section in the back on batik where it tells you the beginner's basics. You can batik on clothing, scarves, gifts, create your own custom fabrics for quilting or whatever!

Fabulous fun with great products. It would be a 5-star rating but for the silly book which is written for "tweens." My suggestion to the buyer: order the kit without the book and follow the instructions provided on this website. Also order a bit of silk. My suggestion to DT: lose the book include your own fabulous instructions and throw in a silk scarf so people can see what a difference it makes to use good fabric.

I wish each product had labels with more instruction on how to use and mix the product other than having to go to a website.

Excellent kit for a batik beginner like me. Everything you need to get started except your "canvas". Dharma's website is easy and fun to use their shipping is reasonable and fast. I will definitely be a return customer!

I would have given it 5 stars but my general dye instructions weren't in the kit. No instructions for anything. You will need to copy and print all directions off web site before you can begin. Not crazy about the colors it would have been nice to have the primaries.
