I suppose this board is an appropriate place for this project??
Anyone who has been paying attention to fashion lately will have noticed all the universe inspired fabrics being used. Well I have a friend who LOVES any space prints and it is her birthday party this friday so I decided to paint her universe underwear. I got her to pick out the undies and she picked these high waisted granny pants to give me a bigger canvas. I was extremely nervous and now quite unsure about the finished product, but this is how they turned out:

I study painting but this was totally out of my comfort zone. So I really hope that she likes them!!

These are fantastic! I was wondering where you got that wonderful fabric (and that it was a photo reproduction), the painting looks great

Best panties ever.  Ever, ever, ever.  I'm so in love!  Wisting and Rocking. 

What kind of paint did you use?

Thanks everyone!!! You make me feel a little less nervous about giving them to her!!
It was just acrylic paint mixed with textile medium to turn it into fabric paint. It's a little crusty (ew sorry that is a bad word to associate with underwear)
I think it actually looks better in photos than in real life. Because it was painted on black fabric, it was hard to get the colour to not look dull. I wonder if it might be better painted on white fabric, with more washy paint.
The method i used for the coloured bits was to rub most of the paint off the brush and then just brush it very lightly over the fabric to get the ephemeral, dotty sort of look. i did a few layers to build up the colours. now that i've done it once, i think i would be able to do a much better job next time.
The swimsuit idea would be great!!!!
