I wanted to do something fun with my kids. We tye dye all the time so I thought a natural next step would be to give them a lesson on batiking. I wish I had thought to take photos of the process - but I didn't.
What we did:
1. Waxed the areas of the fabric that we wanted to stay white.
2. Painted on various colors
3. Waxed over the colors painted on
4. Dipped the entire garment into dye
Below are our creations :)
My 4 year old created this sarong
A sarong by my 5 year old

Of course I made something for my grandson
