HANDS-ON HOUSTON:
Wax-Resist & Salt-Marbled Greeting Cards

December 6, 2014 at 11:00 am

This month, join HCCC volunteers and staff as we use traditional fiber-arts techniques to create colorful greeting cards with extraordinary decorative effects. Participants will draw a design of their choice with crayons and paint over it with bright watercolors. The wax crayon prevents the paper from absorbing the pigment, allowing the design to show through. This technique, called wax resist, has been used in Indonesian batik and African wax-cloth production for centuries. Participants will then sprinkle the painting with salt while it’s still wet and observe the beautiful marbled patterns created as each grain of salt absorbs the moisture around it. This technique is used in silk painting and paper marbling.  Once finished, everyone will take home a unique greeting card to give or treasure as a piece of art. Read More »
