About Katazome Stencil Dyeing
It is a very laborious stencil printing technique for fabric and paper. It relies on natural materials such as paper, rice paste and soy milk.
To create a katazome print, the design has to be cut into a piece of hand-made paper to create stencil. To create a complete print, more than one stencils might needed to combine them together in a different orders.
Then rice paste is applied on the paper through the open areas of the hand-cut stencil and the ink is painted through the open areas directly. Before applying another layer, the first layer need to be completely dried up. Any layers applied after the one before would not go through as the rice paste creates resists.
