Batik

Batik is a traditional fabric dying resist technique. The design work is created with wax, and then fabric dye is applied over the wax to color the surrounding areas. To create fun designs with kids, you can use Aleene's Clear Gel Tacky Glue as the resist and spray over the design with Tulip ColorShot Instant Fabric Color. Use the glue to trace a design and let dry. Then spray or paint over the glue with two to three colors. Let dry and then you can wash the fabric to remove the glue.
