These are the colouring and painting techniques I apply:
- Color ( C ) :
By "dipping" the raw frame into differnetly coloured baths Ii create different colour gradients.
- Multicolor ( MC ):
By covering different parts of the frame before dipping I produce drastically different colour changes. This techique can be applied several times until the final result is achieved.
- Batic ( B ):
Quite similar to the batik dye technique I paint ornamentalls with wax onto the frame and then colour it. Later the wax is removed and the original colour re-appears in these Ornaments. This technique can also be applied several times. This way I can create wild patterns. At the end I remove all remaining wax and polish the frames
