As a young child, I very distinctly recall working with wax and fabric as they tried their hand at silk painting.  Thinking back on it, I guess that my parents were just experimenting with their creative side, as the experience didn’t last more than a year or two.  But, it was a wonderful time for me.  I remember the colours, the process, the fabrics, and most of all the surprise and excitement at the unexpected result.  Wax painting of any sort is a bit like that – unless you are experienced with the craft, the result emerges in bits and pieces and it’s final true beauty is only revealed at the very end of the process, in a wonderfully surprising blaze of unexpected colours.

Although I have not yet personally repeated the Craft in my Adult years, the experience and memories have remained with me and perhaps one day I will experience the wonder all over again. The book Beginner’s Guide to Creative Batik is where I would look to get my creative juices flowing again and to begin a journey to learn Batik painting.  Or if you are looking to learn encaustic art, try out this book for the Encaustic enthusiast :Encaustic Art: The Complete Guide to Creating Fine Art with Wax
