Beautiful Batik Watercolor

Today's Craft:
Beautiful Batik Watercolor

Create a cool watercolor batik project!

Craft Project Directions:
To make this project you will need a piece of white cloth, a squeeze bottle, a pencil, watercolors, a brush, flour, alum, and water.

To begin, you need to create a paste. Add 1/2 cup of flour and 2 teaspoons of alum to 1/2 cup of water and mix to create a paste.

Pour the mixture into a squeeze bottle and squeeze into your cloth to create an interesting design. Let the cloth dry overnight.

Next take your watercolors and paint the cloth.

Let your painting dry overnight and then rub and crack the paste off the cloth to finish your wonderful batik creation! You can also try this technique on pillows and t-shirts!
