• Batik Tulis •
Which brings us to the most traditional and time consuming method of all which is called batik tulis or batik drawing. The drawing refers to the canting tool which is used. In this case the application of wax itself already requires diligence, patience and precision.
The wax must be heated to the correct temperature using a small stove (either gas or wood burning). Once the wax is a good temperature the cloth can be covered with the initial design or motif.
