Batik for kids!

14 04 2010

This week we found this great post on how to do batik with kids.


Acrylic craft paint
Washable clear (or blue) school glue
Paint brushes
Fabric you want to paint

1. Draw your pattern with glue onto your fabric.  I used an old pair of shoes that are made of cloth. Let your glue dry completely. I let mine sit overnight.

2. When the glue is dry, paint within your pattern with watered down acrylic craft paint. Then let the painted fabric dry.  This should take about half an hour.

4. With warm water, rinse your dry shoes. To help you get the glue off you can rub the fabric with your fingers or use a nail scrubber.

5. You just made batik! Let your fabric dry overnight or use a laundry dryer. Enjoy!
