RE: adire cloth
From "Art from Many Hands" (pp. 14-16) comes the following recipe
6 tbsp flour
1 tsp alum
2 cups cold water
Cook in top of double boiler, stirring until it becomes semi0-transparent
and thickens somewhat
Designs may be painted on fabric but the paste is easier to manage if cooled
slightly and put in a [plastic squeeze bottle.
Paste should form a raised line.beat in a little extra water if too thick,
cool longer if too liquid

Is the recipe in "Art from Many Hands"? I don't have the book with me, but
know it had an adire cloth activity in it.

Hi, I remember using a recipe for a fool-proof paste resist for adire cloth
that I found in one of the art teacher magazines years ago.
I saved that article and used the recipe for many years and now I can't find
Does anyone remember? It used flour, alum and something else, I think. I
can't remember the measurements -- 2 tsp of alum?
