Moon Worshipperby ReincarnationsPF

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.

I really like the tree on the left. :nod: It looks... neat and realistic. :D Might I ask what's the salt for in the process of making this?

The salt is dropped on as a resist. It melts and gives you rings of color variation. ;-)

Thank you very much! The symbology can be interpreted that way, yes. ;-)
