Batik Watercolor on Rice Paper

I have been researching how to do this batik technique on rice paper and today I decided that I had read enough, watched enough and was ready to jump in.  It's a rather lengthy process with hot wax used as a resist for the watercolor but I think it will be something that I might enjoy doing more of. I love texture in paintings and with this technique there is definitely texture! I think this one is a bit too much texture but I think I know how to fix that, hopefully. I ripped the paper in the process hence the "deckled" edges. Anyway,  here's to embarking upon a new fun creative adventure!
