Re: Batik recipe using aloe and toothpaste

This recipe calls for toothpaste and aloe based hand lotion. It doesn't have
to be an exact ratio. You just want enough lotion in there so the mixture is
easy to use to make designs. Instead of putting the fabric into a dye bath,
you stain it with tempera paint. The idea is to choose colors that are
particularly good at staining, paint them on and when the paint is dry, wash
out the resist and paint together.
