Malaysia and Indonesia: Batik
Batik is a method of applying color and designs to cloth. It is an art form that has been practiced in Malaysia and Indonesia for centuries. Traditional artists use wax on the fabric as part of the process. You can use washable glue to make designs an easier way.
First, use the glue to draw pictures or designs on muslin or other light-colored fabric. Let the glue dry completely. Apply fabric paint in one or more colors where there is no glue. Wash the fabric in the washing machine to remove the glue.
