* Permanent Marker and Rubbing Alcohol Technique for Tie-Dying Art and Craft Aprons With Project Popperz

As part of our Elmer's Kids Craft Camp week
the girls asked if we could make tie-dyed art aprons 
with the Project Popperz markers Elmer's sent us.

We used the same technique that we used when we used
permanent markers to "tie-dye" hankies at my daughter's 
2010 Rainbow Birthday Party.

My little cutie-patooties at work in the art studio 
(I did have a fan going and an open window!)

The girls made patterns of dots with the Project Popperz markers
(we protected the table with layers of newspapers underneath)

Then, we carefully applied rubbing alcohol (with a pipette)
to the center of each design 
and the desired tie-dyed effect is achieved!

This is a project best done in a well-ventilated area 
or outdoors, the markers and alcohol are stinky!

The girls love having personalized aprons 
now in the art studio for all of our (messy) crafty fun!
