Lost wax technique

anillos antigüedad

The technique of lost wax sculpture is a precedure old tradition used to obtain metal figures ( usually bronze), using a mold made with beeswax. This technique is very laborious and requires a long manufacturing process.

First the wax is molded to create the desired size, then carving around with clay well pressed and placed in an oven set to melt the wax ( which exits through holes prepared to this effect) and in place of the wax is introduced in liquid bronze adopting this original shape of the mold.

Then the clay is broken and leaves inside the desired size which is usually given a final treatment for patina finish.

Breaking the mold makes each piece unique and therein lies its charm and its value.

 

 

 

Batik

The technique of batik comes from Indonesia and is strongly rooted in several African countries at the beginning of last century.

This is a very laborious technique consists of applying layers mixed with paraffin wax on the fabric to be treated while the colors are added the remaining fabric tinting. Thus the more colors have more layers the final drawing .

After removing the excess wax layer is applied last end for fixing them brighter colors and.

This way to dye the fabric with wax batik makes washable without fear of colors and designs go and so this technique is used to paint clothes.

The quality of batik can be seen on the reverse where the original design can be seen perfectly although with different shades of colors.

Each is hand-painted Batik, since moldes, and that's what makes them unique pieces.

Africaialha Association

Ialha en lengua bambara (West Africa) means going for a walk and in Arabic roughly translates as we, forward.

Africaialha equipment moves Africa one or two times a year from 1.999. This enabled us to understand the different realities of much of this continent through contact and experiences with its inhabitants.

The partnership comes from the time when we decided that in addition to investing in African crafts could also do more, leverage our trips to open a path back and forth between this continent and called the "first world". Publicize aspects between continents so close seem so far due to lack of mutual. Open a communication channel, exchange and understanding that we approach and avoid cultural distance that separates us.

From these principles began to be interested in the projects of local associations of the various towns and cities we passed, We have been tracking those who have sustained over time and we have seen its evolution and transformation over several years.

Africaialha wants to connect all those individuals and organizations willing to collaborate with each other for a cause of common concern in any field and range. To make this possible we start in February 2009 Project solidarity trips.

Africaialha Association is registered in the National Registry of Associations in Group: 1/ Section: 1/ National Number: 594820.
