this project may be a tad bit beyond my 4 yr old... at least the dripping of the alcohol onto the fabric.  coloring the fabric, however wasnt.. he just soaked one spot causing the ink to not spread very well.. but eh, I can let him draw on fabric and I'll do the driping LOL

One tip was to use a spray bottle for the alcohol.  Your 4-year old might not care if you just do the dripping.  Wink  It takes a moment for all the colors to swirl and bleed.  We found that it was boring to use only one color so we used combinations of colors instead.

What fun!  The Sharpie people just contacted me about this project on my blog!  This makes me wonder how the Sharpie people even know about my blog....

Paper Coffee filters work wonderfully well for a similar project.... but I haven't tried it since I could afford a wide assortment of Sharpies... Roll Eyes

My daughter came home from school dismissively saying that she totally did this before at school.  It didn't take long for her to get excited about it again!  Fabric is cool, because it is fabric.. not paper.. I'm a fibercraft person more than a papercraft person.  Cool

You can also do this with regular markers and water, but the images wont be permanent.  I also think that those markers have colors that separate.  The black does especially separate into pretty colors.  Black Sharpies just get sort of grey with the alcohol..

mm spray bottle may have been easier for him.. we could count how many sprays we need to get our desired effect...  Great idea!

I've also never heard of this before.  I have everything I need to try this.  Does it work on paper as well?  It would make some really cool looking cards.
