Sorry, because of postal restrictions we can't send wax or soda ash outside the UK
Fine pellets - 300 grams of a ready made batik wax mix made up of 225 grams of paraffin wax and 75 grams of beeswax. This is a good all purpose wax for batik.
Reuse as often as you like!
Beeswax is a very flexible wax which will give a very good resist against dye because it will bend rather than crack.
It can be used in conjunction with paraffin wax if you want to create a crackle effect. It also has a nice beeswaxy smell.
150 grams of pure beeswax pellets
White paraffin wax pellets give a brittle wax which can be cracked easily (which you may want for a fine crackle effect). If the wax is too brittle, add some beeswax to the pot to give a more flexible wax.
300 grams pack of fine pellets
A completely natural blended and softer wax which has a lower melting point than regular wax, it can be easily removed in hot water and is ideal for using with children. It can also wash straight down the drain as it is a starch.
Soya wax is used by many Japanese batik artists in their "rozome" work - it gives a softer outline and a less definite resist.
300 grams pack
This small pack of soda ash will make a 10 litre solution when mixed with water.
This can be made up in advance and stored safely in a plastic bottle. This "soda water" can then be used to add to the powder dyes whenever its needed
A large pack of soda ash which can be added to a dye bath for dip dyeing.
Alternatively it can be diluted with water to make a "soda solution" which can be added to the powder dyes when needed. This is especially good when painting on dyes.
Out of stock for the time being - we have been trying to restock these waxpots but our supplier in Germany is no longer sending to the UK.
Meanwhile I suggest using a thermostatically controlled deep fat fryer to melt your wax - this has worked very well for me. Of course, you CANNOT use it for frying your chips in after you've batiked with it!
The good thing is that it will also be big enough to heat copper or wooden stamps
