    DIY batiks or what to do with elmer's glue

    Does anyone want to try making their own batik fabric? This works!

    If at first you DO succeed, try not to look so surprised.

    Well, there goes my quilting phase . . . I'll be busy off dying fabrics now.
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

      I think I would be dangerous with dye. I'll leave this new phase for Sandy!!!

          I did some fabric painting about 5 years ago and loved it. There are several ways of accomplishing the final product but this was a good tutorial. Thanks Plix! Good to see you posting again recently!!

              Hi Lisa
              if you are meaning quilt cotton as opposed to silks and satins, yes. This is a fun technique to experiment with W.O.W.
              Just follow those steps in tut - drying time etc and it should be fine.

                Oh dear. My sister gave us some dyes left over from her art classes at school. I can see what we will be doing over the next few weeks. (Add blue gel glue to the shopping list.) Like I didn't have enough projects already....
                Thanks Plix!

                      How cool ! This is something to save for the two months when I'm off work. You know, those months when nothing is happening at a plant farm. LOL

                        This is great and looks like a lot of fun. Plus if you can't find that perfect color to match something you can do it this way. I have a friend by the name of Len Brondum who is an artist that paints on silk. Her paintings and clothing she has made would knock your socks off. She recently was invited to Washington D.C. for an award in the national council of the arts. You all would love her, her work is gorgeous. And she also does enamel work. Her enamel work is quite spectacular too. She is such a lovely person. She is in her mid to late 70's but you would never know it. She has paintings around the world, so if you ever get a chance to see her work, enjoy! Hugs, Jan L.
