01 CANTING TECHNIQUE
Better known as batiklukis (drawing batik), the pattern is drawn onto a piece of fabric using the canting –a penlike pod with a narrow spout that allows hot wax to flow out. The fabric is then coloured with broad strokes of the brush where the dye seeps across the fabric. The wax applied onto the fabric acts as a barrier that stops the colours from bleeding together.
BLOCK 02 TECHNIQUE
This is amongst the earliest technique known in Malaysian batik-making and also known as batikblok or batikcop. A wooden or metal block is used to stamp patterns onto a white cotton cloth that creates beautifully intricate patterns.
03 SILK- SCREEN TECHNIQUE
This process involves the use of polyester screens of varying motifs stretched out onto a white piece of fabric followed by colour application. The final design is acquired by applying each screen pattern one by one and the fabric is known as
batikstensil or batikskrin.
