    That's beautiful, I've also heard you can use kids school glue, like Elmers because it just washes out.

    I did batiks years ago. It's very messy to say the least and a lot harder than it looks.

    Found this really interesting, might give it a try just to see IF I can do it and it is as easy as it looks. I like making a mess. Still a big kid at heart.

    Yes pictures please. I've been doing some research on hand dyed fabrics and I think it would be quite fun to dabble a bit. One of the most educational sites I've found gives you directions on making a rainbow of different colored fabrics, using just three dyes, and I'm thinking it would make a great rainbow quilt.

    I'm always up for the good the bad and the messy!

    Oh yes, Oh yes, I have been looking for a while for a technique I want to try. This is great. I have known about the flour sence I was a kid. I like this. I already have fabric paint. This and the shaving lotion. Someday I am going to try both. Someday. :wink: :D
