Created by Mindy & Ainsleigh Rapp

Technique: Crayon Batik

Crayon Batik Tutorial


  1. Crayons
  2. Reinkers or Acrylic paints
  3. Pan large enough to fit your paper into
  4. Cardstock or any porous paper
  5. Paper Towels

Step One

Create designs with the crayons onto your cardstock/paper

Step Two

Add your reinkers or Acrylics to your pan with enough water to submerge your paper 1/8" deep.

Step Three

Add your cardstock/paper (right side up) to the bath and let it soak up the dye mixture. When desired color/shade is obtained remove the cardstock from the bath and rinse with cool water to remove any excess dye. Lay to dry onto paper towels.

Step Four

Use the paper on a project.
