How To: Batik Fabric with a Tjanting Tool

How To: Batik Fabric with a Tjanting Tool

I'm always searching for unique techniques and tools for crafting and DIYing. So when I saw this tutorial for batiking fabric, I was intrigued.    

Ella Nimmo created this constellation design for Brit + Co using a tjanting tool to apply a design with melted wax, before dyeing the fabric. The wax acts as a resist, which after dyeing, creates a unique look that you can make as intricate as you'd like.
