Draw a circle and write the text

First step complete!

Spread glue on the outlined area

The glue is now completely dry

Tie ties around the pillowcase really tightly!

Here is how it should look after it is all tied up.

Now start adding the different paint colors!

It is finally time to snip off the ties with a scissor. Be careful :)

Now the ties are fully untied, let dry completely

Wash pillowcase to remove the glue...and Voila!

You can also create matching t-shirts or pyjamas with the same technique

    Do I peel the glue off or does it come off in the wash? I turned on English CC but I am still confused on that part. Thank you :)

    Do you water down the acrylic paint? Why is it put into the empty water bottles?
