AWESOME Crayon Batik!

UPDATE!!! I got an amazing comment from Phyl...if you are going to do this, you might try these tweaks to my lesson that was left in the comments section by one of the greatest art teachers, Phyl, that ever lived!!

Here's how to get the letters on to your fabric (I recommend gloves as I got ink all over my hands doing this project). Use a…
