Try out Batik
The things you need:
1. Cotton cloth (50 cm x 50 cm)
2. Fabric dyes (yellow and blue)
3. Paraffin wax
4. Paint brush
6. Wooden or plastic frame
7. Metal Container
Step 1: Draw out a picture of a Panda on the cloth and put it in a frame.
Step 2: Using the brush, apply a layer of wax on the area that you want to keep white. While doing this, the wax container should lie next to you on a slow fire. A stove or a heater would solve the purpose.
Step 3: Once the wax has dried, dip the cloth in the yellow dye. You will have a full yellow background and a partially yellow Panda.
Step 4: After the cloth dries, apply a layer of wax on the yellow background.
Step 5: Now, dip the cloth in blue dye. Take it out and leave it to dry.
Step 6: Boil water in a big vessel and dip the dyed cloth into it. The wax will melt and what you will see is a batik panda.What is unique about Batik is the cracked pattern that is made when colour passes through the layers of dry wax.
