Coaster painting is a difficult artistic technique that is executed directly on a sheet of glass.
The glass supports the paint like a canvas. It is through this support that we contemplate the work.
Thus the glass serves both as a support and as a protective varnish. Note that it is a cold technique so that the process does not require baking.
The pigment is bound to the glass by an oily vehicle most often based on varnish. It usually takes about fifteen hours to make a coaster!

The Wax is not of African origin in reality. It has been made in Indonesia for several centuries, where Holland has several colonies there. But when the Indonesians revolted against this colonization after the Second World War, the Dutch recruited mercenaries in their trading posts on the coasts of West Africa. It is in particular the Ghanaian mercenaries who returned from Borneo and Sumatra after the conflict, bring home the typical fabric of Indonesia the Batik and it is according to its manufacturing technique that it will be renamed wax (which means wax) .
As soon as it arrived in West Africa, the fabric was a resounding success which is still undeniable today. The Dutch, then the English, noting the enthusiasm and the strong demand, embarked on the production of wax at home. They had the monopoly of this fabric until the 1960s, a period during which Ghana set up prohibitive customs duties and launched its own local production. Ghana is followed by Ivory Coast and Senegal which set up manufacturing plants in their capitals to compete with Dutch wax.
