Another in the 'drawing down the moon' series of Batik wall hangings. From the Vault of Assorted Crafts.
Batik is a time-consuming but very rewarding process involving wax, dye, salt, water, and time. Each color has to be washed and set before the next color can be applied. Factor in about a day per color, and pieces such as this one easily take a week or more to create.
