That's a great idea. I teach studio arts and textiles at high school and both involve students manipulating fabric. This is so much more simple than full batik and it suitable both for test pieces when using batik and as a finished process.

Thanks for the tute. Now I need to find a glue here which does wash out like that.

Good luck with the glue hunt, schnerby! Hopefully it won't be too tough for you to find. I've seen different types of gel glue at dollar type stores too. Ebay has never failed me in finding anything, either!

This is amazing!  Thank you so much.  I'm going to check the local dollar store for gel glue next time I go.

I hope you guys try it! It's really fun and cheap to do, and there are so many possibilities! I was thinking about even trying it out on a white shirt. Will let you know if I attempt!  Smiley

Lovely project - here is Aus we have a product called 'no more pins' - a clear washable craft glue that worked well when I did this on a T-shirt with lyrics from my favourite band. I got the idea from http://www.u-createcrafts.com/2011/08/creative-guest-watermark-tee-by-sweet.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+u-createcrafts%2FOlHW+%28Ucreate%29&utm_content=Google+Reader

I did this last year with a group of children.  You can cut down on the drying time by using a hair dryer.  Just make sure you hold down or secure the fabric so the hair dryer doesn't blow it away!

Thanks for the link whenindoubtsew! I'll have to try this with actually dye. It looks really nice on that shirt.
