Amazing to find this Batik Ink Set so intact with P x Ink Bottles with Patterns also..
A few years back I came across a set which includes 8x Coloured Dye Bottles + 1x Wax Bottle with the Applicator Tude, 1 x box of 'PINS' with 'Java Batik Art Co. 343 Sussex St., SYDNEY' on the box + a Batik Dyeing Instruction Booklet which explains the Dyeing process titled 'Batik Work'.. Unfortunatley the Envelope with the Patterns was not with the set..
As the above set is the only one I can seem to find on Google Search, I was wondering if you could give me any more details on this item..
Many Thanks - Look Forward to hearing from you!
