Okay so I was browsing through lookbook‘s forums and I stumbled upon a thread about how to print some galaxy graphic tees. Of course, Im not foreign to these shirt things since I saw a couple of people in lookbook walking with galaxies, constellations and stars on them. I admit it I was a bit surprised because I thought these tees were just for sale or printed via computer or its by the fabric used etc. but it’s handpainted so you can actually do a DIY of it.
Im a sucker for galaxies, since its the modern era, and Gaga’s born this way era seems full of extra terrestrial stuff and outer space and retrogrades I should really consider this. Aside from mint, I do want some of these. I dont know if Im late or whatever, but the community where Im staying is so outdated 😐
Anyway, you can make the fancy t-shirt with just simple tools
- an old toothbrush
- a fine paintbrush
- textile paint or acyrlic paint
- any garment as long as it’s dark colored (oh and cotton is good)
Ill be buying some supplies tomorrow. Im so excited to do this! I have a some plain blacks in my close + I found old pair of black jeans from my father’s closet (he probably wont use this). Anyway, Ill be buying some purples and blacks and experiment with some colors. I only have a budget of 13$ and I hope I can pull this off. If I get interesting result I might sell these things 🙂
I love the idea! its so unique + easy to make and it turns out quite awesome!
anyway, here are some tuts
