Summer Camp Projects ROCK!! ~BATIK style pillow cases~
First the students sketched design thumbnails in their sketchbook. Once they finalized their ideas they started by painting their words or designs on the pillow case with CLEAR GLUE. Once it was completely dry (we waited 24 hours) they painted right over the glue. Then we washed out the glue and put them in the washing machine. The water based glue washes out and leaves their designs.
(Hint~ the acrylic paint is permanent but faded slightly in the wash. So suggest going a bit darker to retain the vibrant color)
