DIY Galaxy Tank

on April 13, 2013

I just realized that I’ve been blogging for over a year now. Thats crazy! I never imagined that I’d come so far and I could have done it without your support. Thanks!

Also, galaxy patterned things have been pretty popular for a while now. I decided to try our the trend with one of my old shirts. Surprisingly, it wasn’t as difficult as it seems.

First  I took a spray bottle and filled it with one part water and one part bleach. Next you just lay down your shirt on newpaper and spray away. I twisted parts of it to get different effects. Make sure to spray the back too.

When your shirt is completely dry your ready to paint. All you need is a foam brush and fabric paint. I mixed the red and blue together to make purple but you could always buy a purple fabric paint if you perfer. There is no real tecnique to painting the shirt. I just blotted my shirt randomly with blue and purple, just be careful not to have too much paint on your brush.

While your painting its going to look like a whole lot of nothing. Once you add dots of white for stars your shirt will look a lot more like a galaxy. After my paint dried I cut off the sleeves but thats optional. I also made it a high- low shirt to get rid of some holes. Heres the finished product!
