Abstract

Gas canting tool is designed and developed to maintain the temperature of batik’s wax where it is long been a problem in conventional batik making industry. This product has a lot of different between the conventional canting tools that can assist the user in easing the process of batik making. The original canting tool takes more time in making a design due to constant solidified of the wax in the wax container and the user also have to add the wax in the wax container from the hot wax pot again and again to finished the design of the batik . This gas canting tool is specially designed using a burner that keeps the wax in the container in molten state. The special design of the gas canting tool enables even the inexperience new user to operate the batik design process with ease. The gas canting tool is able to achieve the objective of this project, where it is the main problem faced by the batik industry; maintaining a constant temperature of 125°C which kept the wax in molten state throughout the batik design process.
