|How are the Silks painted?|
| ||Beginning with white silk the design is sketched iin pencil then|
a fine Line of wax (Tjanting) is drawn on top of the pencil sketch.
A palette of colored dyes is mixed and the fabric is stretched on
a frame like a canvas in preparation for painting. With brushes,
resembling a tips, the intricate designs come to life through hours
of blending colors. Later the dyes are set by a very involved process
and the wax is boiled off. Each piece takes between 30 and 40 hours
