Batik By sam zid

Three starting designs

What was your color order? I did yellow, greens, blues, then a dark hello blue

What was the hardest part of the batik process and why? Ironing because it took along time.

What did you learn about color mixing with your batik? Do light colors first then go to darker. I also learned some new colors.

What do you wish you would have learned or understood about the process before you started your batik? I wish i would have known that is some parts its hard to see shapes.

If you did it over again what would you do differently? I would make better shapes and finish in a darker color.



The purity of a color or its freedom from white or gray.
