                             HOW TO MAKE BATIK

      Now this word batik is already widely known abroad. Both women and men of
berbagian tribe Indonesia fond of wearing fabric pattern decorated with batik or batik fabric
itself, which was made and cut according to their respective tastes. The foreign tourists or
foreign officials living in Indonesia is very fond of batik and often take it home as a by-
oleh.Batik is one of the arts that has become a culture in Indonesia, particularly in Java. Batik
has been recognized by the people of Indonesia since the days of Majapahit. Therefore Batik
certainly has an interesting history, both of the meaning, use, until the weave.

      "The meaning of the word batik: art expert scholars, both Indonesian nationals and the
foreigners, not to agree on what exactly the word batik. Some say that the name is derived
from the tick batik contained in the said period. Point means also drops. Indeed, in the making
of batik cloth done also hatching candle on a white cloth. There is also a search for the origin
of the word batik in the ancient written sources. According to this opinion, the word batik is
associated with the word writing or painting. Thus, the origin is also linked with batik
painting and drawing in general.

       "The origin of Batik is still unclear. Batik can be found in many Asian countries such
as Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Sri Lanka. Besides batik is found in several countries in
Africa. But Still Batik most famous in the world is batik from Indonesia.
"Besides Asia, batik is also very popular in some countries on the African continent.
However, batik, which is very famous in the world is batik from Indonesia, mainly from Java.
Batik variety of shades and colors are influenced by various foreign influences. Initially, batik
has a variety of shades and colors are limited, and some patterns may only be used by certain
circles. However, coastal batik absorb various external influences, such as foreign traders and
also in the end, the invaders. Bright colors like red popularized by the Chinese, who also
popularized the style phoenix. European colonial nations are also taking interest in batik, and
the result is a style previously unknown flowers (like tulips) and also objects brought by the
colonizers (the building or horse-drawn carriage), including their favorite colors like blue.
Retain traditional batik s type, and is still used in traditional ceremonies, because usually each
style has a representation of each.

      Batik in Indonesia is already on Majapahit kingdom. Batik previously only intended for
a family of kings only. Along with the times, too, batik in Indonesia developed into art almost
in all parts of Indonesia.
      Art of batik is an art image on the fabric for clothing that becomes one of the family
culture of Indonesian kings of old. Initially batik is done only limited in the palace alone and
proceeds to dress the king and family and his followers. Because many of the followers of the
king who lived outside the palace, the art of batik was brought by them out palace and worked
in place of each.

      History of batik in Indonesia is related to the development of the Majapahit kingdom
and the kingdom afterwards. In some records, the development of batik is mostly done in
times of Mataram kingdom, and in the kingdom of Solo and Yogyakarta.

      In the development of batik art gradually imitated by the people nearest and
subsequently expanded into the work of women in the household to fill his spare time.
Furthermore, batik clothes that used only the royal family, then became a popular folk clothes,
both women and men. White fabric that is used when it is the result of homespun. Medium
coloring materials used consist of plants native to Indonesia who made himself among others
of: noni tree, tall, Soga, indigo, and materials made from soda ash soda, as well as salts made
from mud.

2.2.1 Components of Batik
1. Color

      Color is a certain spectrum contained in a perfect light (white). The identity of a color
specified wavelength of the light. For example, the color blue has a wavelength of 460
      The wavelength of the colors the human eye can still be caught ranged between 380-780
In the optical equipment, the color can also mean interpretation of the brain to mix the three
primary colors of light: red, green, blue are combined in a particular composition. For
example, mixing 100% red, 0% green, 100% blue will produce a magenta color interpretation.

      In art, the colors can mean a certain reflection of light is affected by the pigment located
in the surface of the object. For example, mixing magenta and cyan pigment with proper
proportions and perfect white light illuminated will produce a sensation similar to a red color.
Each color can give the impression of particular identities corresponding social observer. For
example, the white color will give the impression of pure and cold in the West because it is
associated with snow. While in most countries of Eastern white color suggests death and very
scary because it is associated with a shroud (although theoretically true color is not white).
In the science of color, black is considered as the absence of all types of waves of color.
While white is considered as a representation of the presence of all color waves with balanced
proportions. Scientifically, they are not the color, although it can be presented in the form of

Grouping Color

      Neutral colors, are colors that no longer has a purity of color or in other words, is not a
primary or secondary color. This color is a mixture of all three color components at once, but
not in exactly the same composition.

      Contrasting colors, are the colors opposite one another memorable. Color contrast can
be obtained from the opposite color (cut midpoint triangle) consists of primary colors and
secondary colors. But it did not rule out forming a contrast color to reject the value or color
purity. Examples of contrasting color is red with green, yellow with purple and blue with
Hot colors, is the range of colors in a semi-circle in the circle of colors ranging from red to
yellow. This color is a symbol, joy, passion, anger and so on. Color impressive heat
Cool colors, are the colors in the range of half a circle within a circle of colors ranging from
green to purple. This color is a symbol of tenderness, cool, comfortable and so on. Cool colors
impressive distances.

Substance Dyes
      Judging from earned sources of textile dyes can be divided into 2, namely:
natural dyes, derived from nature that rise from animals (lac dyes) or can be derived from
plant roots, stems, leaves, fruit, bark and flowers.

      Synthetic dyes are artificial dyes (chemical dyes.) Since a lot of these synthetic dyes for
dyeing batik then be selected dyes are:
           a. Its use in cold conditions or if the temperature of the process does not require
              heat to melelehlan candle.
           b. Medication did not help him destroy the candle and not cause hardship hardship
              on the next process.
      Batik craftsmen have many familiar plants to coloring textile materials some of which
are: indigo leaves (indofera), bark soga Cleaner (Ceriops candolleana arn), wood tegeran
(cudraina javanensis), turmeric (curcuma), tea ( the), roots of noni (Morinda Citrifelia), skin
soga jambal (pelthophorum ferruginum), kesumba (bixa orelana), leaves of guava (Psidium
guajava). (Sewan Susanto, 1973)
       According R.H.MJ. Lemmens and N Wulijarni-Soetjipto in his Vegetable Resources of
Southeast Asia Nn.3 (dye-producing plants and tannin, 1999), most of the colors can be
obtained from plant products, in the plants are plant pigments of different colors depending
penimbul by structure chemical. In general olongan plant pigments are chlorophyll,
carotenoids, and quinones flovonoid. Vegetable dyes are used to color textiles can be
classified into 4 types according to their nature:
            1. Direct Dyes of hydrogen bonds with the hydroxyl groups of fibers; dye is easily
                 smudged example (curcumin)
            2.   Dyes acids and bases, each of which combines with the asambasa wool and silk,
                 while cotton can not be eternal color when stained; examples are flavonoid
            3. Dyes fat back in the fibers caused by redox processes, dyes often show special
                 immortality to light and washing (eg Tarum).
            4. Mordant dyes to color textiles that have been given a compound Mordant et al
                 polyvalent; dyes can be highly conserved example alizarin and Morindin.
                 In dyeing with natural dyes are generally required workmanship mordanting on
                 the material to be dyed / stamped mordanting process which is done by
                 immersing the material into metal salts, such as aluminum, iron, tin or chrome.
                 Mordant substances serves to establish a bridge between the chemistry of natural
                 dyes to dye the fiber so that the increased affinity of the fibers. This is consistent
                 with the results of changes in physical and chemical properties due to dye silk
                 fabric skin's natural noni roots performed Tiani and Dasep sincere Hamid (2005)
                 showed that the use of Mordant kelunturan fabric colors can reduce the influence
                 of leaching. This shows Mordant compound capable of binding color so it does
                 not easily fade.
