*What is Watercolor Batik?
Batik means "wax written" and involves the use of liquid hot wax and successive watercolor washed on ginwashi oriental paper, which yields abstract textured qualities. Watercolor batik creates an artistic interpretation, rather than a literal one, using watercolor paint instead of dies. Jeanne Wagle uses harmoniously enriched color choices and a broad range of values. Once the layers are complete, the paper is crinkled into a ball, producing small "cracks" in the wax. The paper is then smoothed, a final wash is applied and sealed with one more coat of wax. When the piece is completely dry, it is placed between layers of newspaper and ironed. Corrections to the painting may be made using watercolor paint or pastel pencils.
