Watermark Tee

Make yourself fun and easy batik clothes!
Summer is long gone (at least here in Central Europe) but even so I want to present you this sunny project that brings back relaxed atmosphere of vacation.

But first comes the question: are you familiar with batiking? It's an artistic method of wax painting and fabric dyeing that results in creating beautiful and lasting fabric designs, be it clothes or decorations. It involves wax as a resist, and thus it can be messy and difficult. Katy, the owner of Sweet Verbena, made up an easier version of batiking, where the resist is simply...a store bought glue.

The process of making Watermark Tee is pretty similar to the one based on wax, but the cloth must be wet when putting the resist. The whole procedure takes no more than one day (the cloth has to be dried two times) and to remove the glue after dyeing you just need to wash the fabric.

If you happen to know, what type of glue could be used instead of the one in tutorial, please let us know in comments below!
