What is stencil dyeing (Katazome)?

Katazome is a traditional Japanese technique that is the basis of silkscreen. The biggest feature is that you can make patterns by cutting out water-resistant paper. And unlike silk screens and stencils, it is resist dyed. For stencil dyeing, resist dyeing paste is applied to the cut out areas of the paper pattern, and after it dries, the parts that are not coated with resist dyeing paste are colored. The negative and positive shapes created by stencil dyeing are reversed compared to silkscreens and stencils.
