I'm currently in love with this particular kind of project! This is the second shirt that I've painted in the galaxy/nebula style. I was a little ballsier with this one...I bleached a lot more of the shirt and used way more colors than I was comfortable with. But, I think it turned out even better than my first. I'm already plotting my next shirt, which will be for a fellow Craftster member.

The original tank top was black, and I used white and many, many shades of blue, pink, and purple...even a little bit of yellow. The paint is acrylic, mixed with textile medium, and a bit of water. I used mostly sponges to paint the shirt. I used a brush to do the 'bright' stars. The tutorial I sort of follow is here.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks, everyone, for all of the positive feedback! Halfway through these huge projects, I get cold feet and have to push myself to finish. I have a hard time imagining what the next step is going to add to the scene, KWIM? Somehow, all those 'stars' hide everything I see as less than perfect.  Wink

This is awesome! I'm hoping to do something like this soon, I just don't have fabric paint right now. The colors look great!
