There are so many resists to choose from. There are a number of commercially available products - waxes, water based resist, washable gel glue. But my favorites are those made from ingredients in your kitchen - oatmeal, flour, sugar, corn syrup, tapioca and grits.
Working with resists requires an ability to let go of your control impulse. They can be unpredictable and small changes in the process can have a big impact on the end result. Below are a few photos of cloth created with a grits resist. If you would like to try this for yourself, download the grits resist tutorial.
