On the third day, we added more texture and detail to our pieces with the tjanting tools (wax dripping tools) and most of us completed our paintings. We were then ready to use many gorgeous metal stamps. These stamps were dipped in bigger pots of wax and then on our rice paper to create a design. Our images could be endless depending on how we placed the stamps, overlapped the shapes and the possibility of the glazes in between. Our instructor brought such a variety of stamps: fish, flowers, coral, dragonfly, etc. It was fun to see how different artists chose the use of these stamps. The end results were awesome. This was a very worthwhile three day class. Many of us have now found another way to express ourselves.
