Batik Prints: Where to Begin

Introduction

Kitchen drawers and sewing boxes are good sources of simple shapes on which to build patterns. From left to right: A cookie cutter makes a wax teardrop; an icing tip and a pastry cutter leave circles (hollow icing tips make solid shapes on the first impression and fading rings with repeated prints); a wooden spool produces donut shapes. For squares, use a wood block from a child's building set or a craft store; make polka dots with a wooden dowel.
