 I couldnt resist more galaxy experimentation so I whipped up these beauties only problem is they are size 5 and I wear a 1 sooo They will need to find a good home






I wish I could have found someone to model them ... but its 11 pm so Pins will have to do lol

Thanks for taking the time to look

To make these I do several layers of bleaching , followed by a few different application methods of rit dye  in various shades ( red , yellow , royal blue , black and purple ) Then I hand paint  more color and detail with glittery silk screen paint in white teal blue and bright green .... just layer and experiment , drip , drop and splatter , and have fun with it Smiley

oh and btw the jeans were not black to begin with , they were blue denim .. so first I dyed them black before starting with the bleach

p.s. I also added some glow in the dark details and stars

These are absolutely beautiful.  I love the little details of planets and spiral galaxies.
I foresee you will get a ton of replies along the lines of "I'm a Size 5" Wink

Great job.  I'm curious did you submerge entirely for each colour of dye or just apply it in spots?

that is a great way to use it, I would have never thought of that.  I will need to try it sometime.
