I was looking for apron ideas for the Made in Mosier fundraiser for the Mosier School. I settled on two techniques: ZenTangle and faux batik.
The Zantangle aprons were designed with ultra fine tip Sharpies and colored in with colored Sharpies and fabric markers.
I used Elmers Gel Glue to create the image for a faux batik look. Once the glue dried overnight, I used acrylic paint to add color.
To remove the gel glue, soak the aprons in a sink full of water. You may need to agitate the fabric in order to remove all the remaining glue.
