2, trace a sketch into cotton cloth

If a sketch is fixed, trace a sketch with a wax brush

Next, draw a rough sketch of design on the cotton,
then slowly trace the outline of the sketch with a brush that has been dipped in the hot wax.

dyeing experience

The next part of the process is the dyeing,
the fabric with the design is dyed in a vat of indigo solution - crumpling the material gently while moving it through the dye to crack the wax.

4, drop wax

soaping to lose wax and too much dye

the fabric will emerge from the dye-vat almost black,
and go into boiling water to remove the wax.
