Batik is process of using watercolor and wax on Ginwashi rice paper. The transparency of the paper adds to the transparent watercolors adding an additional source of light. The process is time consuming but not difficult. All levels of painters will complete a successful painting. A line drawing is used so no drawing is required. Once you learn the batik process you will be able to adapt this process to your own designs. You will learn a trick which will make the batik process much less frustrating.
