African Wax and Indonesian Batik Art

In KS2 Art Club we have been focussing on cloth and patterns used in African Wax and Indonesian batik. We made our own oil pastel batik pictures. First we drew a picture in oil pastels. Then we screwed up the paper several times to form creases. We then painted a thick layer of black paint over the oil pastel picture. Lastly, we washed off the black paint, only leaving paint in the creases to create a batik-like effect.
