Shiva Batik ATCs

Shiva paint sticks are beautiful, and they dry quickly. This is a quick and easy project that anyone can do.
Materials - Shiva paint sticks, cardstock, black paint, UTEE, melting pot & tools, paints
Step 1: Take skin off of shiva paint sticks. (Peel off the top layer.) Colour and doodle on card (colour of your choice.)
Step 2: Cover in black paint, as if you were doing crayon batik, and then wipe off excess paint.
Step 3: Add colour back in with more paint sticks and paints. Step 4: Cut into ATCs. This is the ATC I made for our team post on 1st October. I painted the pink ribbon and then placed the ATC face down (paint still wet) into the melting pot with hot UTEE. Here are two other ATCs after adding UTEE.
