In my 4th grade class, students used 100% cotton fabric, watered down acrylic fabric paints, and clothes pins to create their very own Shibori fabric art! Steps: 1) Write name on fabric with sharpie (I used approximately 12"x18" sized pieces of fabric) 2) Dip fabric in water and then wring it out 3) Lay flat on table and fold like an accordion (1" wide) 4) Place clothes pins on damp fabric compressing the places you want to resist dye 5) Place compressed fabric in plastic tub and pick 2 of the 3 primary colors 6) Saturate the top of the fabric with dye 6) Turn fabric over to back and fill in any white spaces 7) Let sit for a minimum 2 hours (I let mine sit until the end of the day) 8) Take off clothes pins and press folded fabric between two towels to absorb any excess dye (DO NOT RINSE OUT!)
