    Tammy's rice paper batiks are done with watercolor paint and permanent ink on rice paper. The paintings are done by layering wax and paint done in a wax resist style of batik. Once satisfied with a painting, you gently crinkle the rice paper into a ball, pinching it in certain areas where you may want cracks to occur. The complete surface, as a final step, is covered with wax and then ironed to remove the wax. The resulting painting is similar to a stained glass window.
