boat

wax-on boat out sailing in Gotland

wax-on boat is the third instalment of the wax-on collaboration between Featuring-Featuring and Avantika Agarwal creating during the second annual Designers on Holiday.

The boat is treated and coloured through burning CMYK pigments into the boats deck, dagger board and rudder a technique based on Avantikas project dreaming in cmyk.

The mast was made using local Swedish pine that was charred and then varnished, whilst the sail was dyed by melting wax and pigment into the cotton, a technique developed by Avantika and Featuring-Featuring for their Wax-On clothes and the Wax-on tent.
