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 DVDs,we recommend Using Tjap Stamps & Basic Batik by Kathie George or Batik Workshop DVD by Rosi Robinson.

 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!

Great bright dyes easy-to-use wax. I had an issue with the brass part of the tjanting coming loose from the wooden handle the first time it was dipped in hot wax which made it extremely difficult to use especially since I couldn't figure out how to re-glue it since everything was covered in wax. No other issues with the set though and I'm thrilled with the results!
