This video is a VERY brief demo* of the Rozome process. To experience the creation of this landscape in greater detail, please consult my teaching video: Rozome: A Demonstration of Japanese Batik.

*Please note: the wax I am using in this demo is beeswax / paraffin. The footage was shot "BS"
— before soywax!

To adapt this rozome technique to soywax, try a wax mixture of 50% soywax to 50% beeswax. Unfortunately, this still requires drycleaning.
