How to make a Flour-paste crackle effect- Spread flour-water mixture over fabric, let dry. Crush to crackle it, then paint fabric. The dried flour mixture acts as a resist. Then washes out. This might work for a "batik" look, too!
Batik Paper.. quite time consuming, but so effective!

Batik A method of dyeing fabric where some areas are covered with wax or pastes made of glues or starches to make designs by keeping dyes from penetrating in pattern areas. Multicolored and blended effects are obtained by repeating the dyeing process several times, with the initial pattern of wax boiled off and another design applied before dyeing again in a new color.
