Wow! Did you use acrylic paint for this? Maybe this is a silly question but I have no idea what kind of paint people use for denim.

I used UV-reactive acrylic paint (from wildfirefx.com) mixed with fabric medium. You can use plain acrylic paint and fabric medium, though. It just won't glow under blacklight.

A few months ago, I transitioned my preschooler from his toddler bed to a full size bed. That meant that he needed a new quilt (he's had to make-do with a couple smaller ones while I worked).

I let him pick out the fabrics, and he chose his favorite characters/shows/movies - Paw Patrol, Doc McStuffins, Mickey, Sponge Bob, Staw Wars, Doctor Who, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Minions, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Cars. I chose the glittery stars and the grey sashing. The back of the quilt is fat quarters in mostly geometric or batik prints in blue/grey/black/white. I figured that his quilt would outlast his love of some of those cartoons.

Everything was stitched on my machine, and I'm thrilled that I was able to shove this massive blanket under the arm while quilting. (My son even chose the shooting star motif that I used.) It ended up being queen-sized, though I was going for over-sized full. Oops.

He was so happy to have it done (and so am I).


Before quilting:

Thanks for looking!

Sorry these pictures aren't great. The only place in my house that is dark enough to do this is my bathroom. Also, it's not easy to take photos under blacklight.

After painting a few t-shirts, I thought it might be fun to paint my old jean jacket. I even took the plunge and used my UV-reactive paints. So, this thing practically sparkles under blacklights. I actually started this project last year, but I ran out of white UV paint and had to re-order.

I gave it the usual treatment. Bleached away the color in a few areas and painted the dark areas with blue and purple. Blue and what was supposed to be turquoise (but ended up looking more green) on the edges of the bleached-out sections. White in the middle and then blown through a straw to make the stars. Any weird splatters get to become the brightest stars.

It's a little flashier than what I normally wear, but I love it.
