Rouketsuzome is one of techniques used to dye cloth. For rouketsuzome, we make use of the characteristic of wax: the wax on cloth resists the penetration of dye. Rouketsuzome is created with brushes, wax and dye. We control wax and use it prevent the cloth being dyed. Crack in wax allows lines of color to come through on resisted areas creating unique patterns. Sengaki, sekidashi, chanchin, and shikebiki are other techniques in batik dyeing.
