Faux Batik












Here's a great project idea that I got from DickBlick. I've done these with kindergarten through 5th grade children. It does require a little more work on the teacher's part though because it's difficult to wash the glue off without washing off too much of the paint. I washed the glue myself and also ironed and hemmed the edges with fabric glue. For more details see:

Have you ever tried using flour paste. Mix up flour with water until it is a creamy consistency. Use fine nozzled bottles to apply. So much cheaper and green!!

Never heard of that--great tip, Ill give it a try! The glue is hard to get off anyway so that might work better too.

Share it!
