Tempera Batik is a style of painting that was developed to resemble true batik, without the use of fabric, wax or dyes. It is achieved by the following steps:
The entire painting is painted with “waterproof” India drawing ink, and the painting is allowed to dry thoroughly.
“This is a process oriented style of painting that can bring truly wonderful, interesting, and more importantly, unexpected results! I enjoy the contrast between the realism and the abstraction found in each piece. I also love the vibrancy of color achieved by using tempera paint in conjunction with India ink.”
