Each of these spring bunnies and eggs is hand-batiked with a ditzy floral pattern on eco-friendly, hand-carved albizia wood. Perfect for mantel or tabletop display. To make a batik, selected areas of the design are blocked out by applying hot wax over them, a dye is applied on top and the parts covered in wax resist the dye and remain the original color. A simple batik may be just one layer of wax and one dye, but this process of waxing and dyeing can be repeated many times if necessary to create more elaborate and colourful designs. After the final dyeing the wax is removed (usually in hot water) and the piece is ready for wearing or displaying.
