Dragon wallhanging by hibbary Dragon wallhanging by hibbary
just like the title says. This was made with resist, tieing techniques, and indigo. And the borders are some kind of satin ribbon.

What type of resist did you use? Was this using the hot wax batik process? If so, then I salute you. I've done two batiks, and that hot wax is hard to manage.

it's an inkodye resist. It acts very much like batik, however it dissolves in water, so there's no heating and melting to do. However, because water dissolves it, you only get two dips at best before it needs to be repainted on. And it takes a long time to dry.

No heating and melting? That certainly eliminates a lot of hassle. Is it a sort of paste, thin paper, or liquid (like liquid frisket)? It looks like you can be pretty precise with it.

Beautiful. I love how the shapes of the wings are repeated, and the tails of the dragons intertwine. What resist method did you use for this, wax? I've been experimenting with batik and other fiber arts myself, so this is quite the inspiration. ^_^

The wings and borders are a kind of stitch resist, and the dragons were painted with inkodye resist. It's very much like batik, but it desintigrates eventually in water. The reason we didn't use wax is because my teacher is allergic, but it works the same way.

the dragon's bodies are painted with a kind of resist, and the rest is different stitch techniques

hibbary Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2005  Professional General Artist
both dragons were drawn nto the fabric and then painted with something called inkodye resist. It's made out of cassaba, or some sort of root or something. Anyhow, it resists dye. The wings were made with a special shibori stitch, the name of which escapes me, but it's when you do a plainstitch through the fabric and then pull it very tight and die it off. That creates a resist along a line. I dipped it in indigo a few times, and then added the border and things. :D There are some very good books out there on indigo techniques, if you care to look into it further.
