Freestyle Batik Artist

So nice to see you here!
My name is Victoria and I am the artist who designs these batiks. If you have a basic understanding of the process, then you may appreciate the uniqueness of this clothing. To those who are not yet familiar, batik is a way of designing fabric by applying molten wax, which then acts as a "resist" on the fabric as it is carefully dyed. This can be done in layers as each dye submersion creates a new color. With my technique, each piece is individually hand painted with 100% pure beeswax. The colors are mixed and measured in the daytime hours so that I can interpret the color process under natural light. The beeswax is eventually cleaned off with boiling water. Once the boil-out process is complete, the batiks are machined washed and dried. ensuring they are very durable for long time ahead.

Curious about my batik supplies?

~ my beeswax comes from a local candle making supply shop, and also from various apiaries and wholesale outlets. It's a never-ending hunt.
~ My Procion dyes are purchased from Dharma Trading Company, based in San Rafael, CA. Check out their website for batik supplies.
~ The yoga pants and leggings come from American Apparel and/or Royal Apparel before I apply the batik.
~ All the organic cotton dresses and tops are sewn by me. I'm sorry I can not take custom orders for these items at this time. However I am open to receiving suggestions for ideas about styles and sizes.
~ The organic fabric comes from a local distributer in my town, called Sew Organics.
~ The organic cotton t-shirts come from American Apparel, and the organic cotton hoodies come from Royal Apparel.
