Traditional Batik is an ancient form of resist dyeing. Hot wax penetrates the cloth preventing dye from spreading to those areas. Designs may involve many or only one color depending upon the number of times the hot wax is applied and the cloth is dipped into different colored dye baths.
This wax pen is great for making lines, shapes and writing text. You no longer have to worry about wax dripping from the tip of the pen. A metal pin sits in the wax bowl and blocks the flow of wax until you have placed it on your fabric, at which point the pressure pushes the pin up slightly and the wax dispenses. The wax pen plugs in to any standard outlet and is filled with your batik or soy wax.
