Black and White

 Ink Batiks on Rice Paper - 10 X 8



It's simple, it's timeless, it's dramatic - that 's why I like black and white.

  11. Oh, thanks, Kali. No, I haven't done a post on how to batik from start to finish. I'll be happy to do that in the fall (too many summer projects going on now). I'll try to do a short preview next week or the following week.
