The Matthews Artists Guild will offers a presentation by artist, Susan Lackey, at the McDowell Arts Center in Matthews, NC, on Sept. 13, 2016.
Susan Lackey will demonstrate a new twist on the age-old Batik process. This process is suitable for any water based medium from water color to colored inks. Lackey uses wax as a resistance on rice paper and will demonstrate the process and tools involved. There will be lots of whimsical artwork on display as well. She says this about the process: “It’s a bit unpredictable and that makes it more fun. The wax seems to intensify the color of the pigment. You are only limited by the size of the rice paper and your imagination.”
