1. With an Elmer's glue bottle, draw a desired image. Keep the shapes as simple as possible and make sure to also draw a border for your picture. Keep art project on top of a regular sheet of paper at all times, even as it dries.
2. Let the glue image dry overnight. You'll notice that the sheet of paper has stuck to the back of the muslin. That is fine, it'll eventually dissolve.
3. Next, spritz some fabric paint all over the surface of the image. I used light colors, such as yellow and red, to have a good contrast.
4. Crumple the fabric into a tight ball so that the colors can soak in.
5. Now color in the main shapes with permanent markers.
6. Soak the project in hot water for 15 minutes or so.
7. Rub off the glue with your fingers and remove any paper from the back.
8. You can add embellishments to the supporting skewer for a finishing touch. I added some burlap and hand-made paper beads.
