Project Instructions

Cut fabric to desired size.

Lightly draw your design onto fabric.

Using directly from the bottle, draw over your lines with a line of glue. Pull with toothpick along line, if needed.

Remember where there is glue, no paint will absorb; so for polka dots, make a dot of glue. Let glue dry thoroughly.

Paint in color where desired, going right up to glue line. Let paint dry thoroughly.

Place fabric in hot water to remove glue. Rub gently if needed till all glue is gone. Let dry.
