Blue Shirt + Blue Glue = Batik pt.1
I ruined my favorite blue shirt by being overzealous with bleach in my laundry. Rather than use it as a rag or a grungy painting shirt I decided to give it a glue batik, a technique I've been wanting to try. So this is step one, applying blue gel glue. I have done traditional hot wax batik before and the glue acts pretty much the same only it takes 24 hours to dry. On the other hand, no burns which is definitely a plus! So when it dries and I paint it, I'll post the next part. I'm thinking green and purple.
