Resist technique

I've got a particularly tricky design that I'd like to use a resist technique for and I was wondering... would Elmer's school glue work in a pinch? I'm unable to afford other pastes at the moment, but I have half a bottle of regular Emer's white glue that has bene unused for well over a year and was wondering if that would work.

Re: Resist technique

Mix 1 part Elmer's with 1 part hair gel.  Put it into a cone and keep the tip opening as small as possible to avoid the glue/gel coming out too quickly and running.  It might help to mix a little old eye shadow or fine-grain glitter into the glue so you can see what you are drawing a bit better.  The hair gel is not absolutely vital, but it does make a better resist than glue on its own.

Re: Resist technique

Flour/water paste is a great resist.  Mix it up, cone it, apply like henna, blow dry.
