The crumpling makes cracks in the wax


Make up a wash in a pot using a squirt of black paint and a little water. Paint the black wash over the crumpled paper
The crumpling makes cracks in the wax and the black paint fills the cracks giving a batik effect.

Cut a square of material to make a basket. We used a scrap of hessian as it had a nice woven effect. You could also colour a piece of paper brown or cut a brown square from a magazine
