I recently purchased Yellow Owl Workshop's Indigo Blue Textile Kit, which simulates the look of indigo dye. Tonight I'm decorating a cotton scarf with Elmer's Gel Glue, which will act as a resist when I paint on the blue dye.
I used up the whole bottle of glue, just like an American Kindergartener. (I was working on a craft project in college with a Bulgarian student, who observed how much glue americans used and noted that in his primary school, glue was quite sparse. I've also noted that using too much white glue results in a wrinkly application, yet young children tend to lay it on thick regardless.)
