Though more commonly associated with oil and watercolour based works, this technique has been creatively incorporated into the field of batik-ing. Some may view it as a method of eliminating the more common white outlines associated with traditional batik and colour them in instead. It gives a more watercolour-like feel to the artwork but still retains the authenticity of batik. The outlines have a more rounded feel as per compared to freehand outlining due to the use of the dye resist.
