Enjoying Indonesian traditional batik painting at the Mall.

My kids had great experience this week. Three of them really get fun this week.
Actually I had written this moment in my other blog, just can't help my self to write over again here, a blog that I dedicated for them.

On a rainy evening after we spent times on a mall, my little boy saw an interesting spot on the corner. He saw a lady did batik painting on fabric. Anyone could try doing Indonesian traditional batik painting there. We should only pay about 4 U$ for one person.
First, the little one tried to do the project with the help of the lady.


Then not too long, his big brother and sis also participated in joining him painting.
For coloring for Indonesian batik we use natural dyed colors made from flower's petal, leaves, root of a tree, or even soil. Specifically these natural colors used only on batik handmade painting, not the ones that produced from a printing batik factory. That's why batik handmade painting is a lot higher in price than batik printing from factory.





























These are their finished batik handmade painting.
