there is a paste resist recipe originally published in _Surface
Design Journal_ which can be stencilled, extruded, or brushed on

on generally easy ingredients to find.

With paste resists the dyes have to be painted on the fabric
rather than the fabric dipped in the dye.

The recipe and instructions for katazome are at:
