In Batik - Modern Concepts and Techniques, leading batik artist Noel Dyrenforth takes the craft beyond the basics to include new materials as well as new techniques, pushing the boundaries of the art form.Noel Dyrenforth shares his years of experience and innovation by graphically detailing the various step-by-step processes of modern and traditional batik. Dyeing is extensively covered with brush, dip, spray and discharge application. Waxing with brush, canting, stamp and stencil and etching on cloth, paper and wood gives the artist a wide choice of options. The projects are devised to exploit the unique nature of the wax-resist technique, while stimulating creative potential.Lavishly illustrated in colour and clearly written and laid out, it features the work of international batik artists and historical pieces, which are used to illustrate the techniques and material covered in the book.
