Batik on paper????


This is something I have always wanted to try so here it goes.


A new page in a sketchbook


Newpaper with few pictures - mostly words



One spread in the sketchook. I made three spreads


Using a hot waxed stamp on the newsprint


With watercolors


Watercolors over wax



Brown, grey and black are three colors I almost never use but I DO like the outcome.
