The batik process is a multi step method by which copper CAPS (pronounced "chops") are shaped into designs using flat copper sheeting and then affixed to a wood block. The fabric is dyed, or kept white if that is the underlying design color, and the CAP is dipped in hot wax. The artist then stamps the wax design onto the fabric creating a resist affect. The fabric is then dyed again with a darker color. At this point more wax can be applied with the same or a different CAP design, creating another resist so that an additional dye bath will cover remaining unwaxed parts. The wax is then removed, resulting in layers of colors and designs.
