Flour Resist Batik: mix a flour/water 'paste' and apply to fabric with a piping bag, in whatever pattern you want! Let dry overnight. Use thinned faric paint OR thin acrylic paint (we used regular craft paint), mix with fabric medium per manuf directions, and brush on. Layer colors in some places to mix ON the fabric. They will blend nicely if thinned out. Let dry. Then peel off dried 'paste' to reveal the resist pattern beneath! Viola! Back Gate Studio/Boise, ID

How to do it: 1. Grab your pillow case. 2. Mix some water with acrylic paint. The thinner the paint the lighter the color. Test it on some scrap fabric first 3.
