1. Girl with Glasses
Watercolor batik is a process of applying melted wax (with a brush) and then watercolor to Asian rice paper in successive layers, each more intense than the previous. The wax acts as a resist, preserving the previous color and excluding the next color layer. When the paper is completely covered, the wax is removed by melting with the heat of an iron and absorbing into layers of newspaper.
