Gel Glue Batik Tees Part Deux

17 Jul


This project is so easy and so much fun.  Just use Elmer’s gel glue to make a design on fabric, let dry, and paint with either tempera or acrylic paints.  The first time I did this I soaked the tees in hot water to remove the glue.  This time I just threw them in the wash and it worked just as well.  The paint faded quite a bit on the ones I did in tempura paint. The photo above is before I washed them.  I did the Gigi one in both types of paint and the colors stayed more vivid.  I’m going to do more experimenting in the future.  These tees make great gifts.  Enjoy!
