After taking a great surface design class, I find myself drawn to new methods of altering fabric. I love seeing this method of gel glue batik, a process in which the resist (usually hot wax) is replaced with kids’ blue gel glue from the school supply aisle. Jennifer of Swallowfield got this lovely resulting design when she tried a tutorial from That Artist Woman. It’s a tutorial that has made its way around the Internet (even making an appearance over on MAKE) but is well worth revisiting. As I did a little more digging around, I found several bloggers who have experimented with this technique. Their experiences offer up some great inspiration and tips, so be sure to check them out as well!
