Is that not the most awesome shirt you've ever seen, or what?! Wanna learn how to make your own? Keep reading...
You'll need some bleach and a little spray bottle. You won't need a lot of bleach (even what I had in my bottle was way too much) I mixed my bleach with some water, but not much.
You're also going to need some fabric paint. I have a lot of acrylic paints so I ended up getting this acrylic fabric medium, which basically turns any normal acrylic paint into fabric paint. Magic. I would say the best colours to use would be white, blue, purple and yellow. (but you can use any you want)
You'll also want to get a black t-shirt or any piece of black clothing.
a) Spray some bleach on your t-shirt . Make blotchy circles, don't cover the whole shirt with bleach though. You want a lot of black space too or it'll look too crowded once you put the paint on.
b) Now start splashing, dripping and smudging your fabric paint. You might want to use a sponge or something similar (paper towel?) but I used my hands. Make sure to wear old clothes and put some newspaper down, because you will get dirty. It's probably better to do this outside.
This is the same shirt but the front of it. I started with the back first to practise.
TIP: Start with the bleach, then splash on some white 'stars', then start making smudged areas of colour. I started with white, then yellow, followed by blue and purple. Build the coloured areas. Make sure they are close together and overlapped. It gives it a nice effect. Then I finished it all off with another coat of white 'stars'. I think they 'stars' look better when they're really small.
I did one side at a time and I let the whole shirt dry overnight and then put it in the wash the next day.
This is my shirt after it was washed. Still looked the same, no fades and the shirt feels the same too. Doesn't feel like theres hard dried up paint stuck to it, you know?
Totally going to make some galaxy tights and/or shorts too. Even thinking about turning one of my old boring black dresses into a galaxy dress. Wouldn't that look cool? Yeah, it's done. I'm doing it!
P.S. What's the difference between a tutorial and a diy?
