Summer Craft Camp: The Batik TechniquePosted by Christine Miller on Aug 14, 2013 in Summer Craft Camp, Uncategorized | 0 comments
The Batik Technique just feels like a summer to me. This is a technique that has been around for a while and I decided to try it on the Creped Filter paper. It works, but I found that I needed to be a bit more careful ironing the filter paper than card stock or mulberry paper. This card is done with the Blooming With Kindness set.
To create this faux Batik look you want to stamp your image with VersaMark ink on to the Creped Filter Paper and sprinkle with Clear Embossin’ Powder. Heat set the powder. Use your Aquapainter to pick up ink refill and color with Stawberry Slush over the flowers and Pool Party ink refill over the open space.
Place your embossed and painted paper between two sheets of copy paper and carefully iron. I had my iron on medium heat and was sure to keep my iron moving. You should see the embossing powder melting into the copy paper. Check it often because it does not take long. I found if it continued to stick in an area, I would just quickly iron over that area again and it released.
Glue the ironed Creped Filter Paper to a piece of Whisper White card stock and finish card as desired.
