Step 2: Working that paint to a lighter color, PURPLE!

I used the same sponge(it dried) but you can switch it out if you want.

So again, put a dime size splotch of paint on your palette and dab your sponge into the paint again.

This time dab the purple paint on top of the blue but don't paint over all of the blue.

Again, build up the paint and wait between each coat before adding more paint.

You want to gradually build the paint and give it a "gradation" effect.

<p>So cool! I will try ^ u ^ </p>
<p>Yay for anything galaxy! Great job! :)</p>
<p>you could also buy one like that legging for 6 dollars from ebay... moreover by making it by yourself you might don't like it and it will be wast of money</p>
<p>How would you suggest keeping it clean and keeping the paint nice? I've had bad experiences with paint separating from fabric in the past, and I would like to know what you use to keep yours intact.</p>
Fantastic! These turned out really nicely!
This is great, good job! :)
Awesome work!
Thanks for the awesome 'ible! <br>Now i can space-out my unused clothes.
Thanks for tutorial! I have always wanted to make galaxy t-shirts and sweatshirts!
Any tips on washing these?
Wash on cold and try to avoid over drying to prevent the t-shirt paint from cracking.
I've had my eye on a galaxy print fabric, but didn't want to pay the price per yard. I'll have to just get some plain cotton fabric and just use this tutorial instead. I can't believe how good this looks. I'm always clueless when it comes to using t-shirt paint, but I'll definitely have to pick some up to try this. Thanks for this tutorial.
Very nice! Being a &quot;sneakerhead&quot; this would go great with the Galaxy Foamposites I have stored away! Def' gonna' try this. :) <br>Thanks for posting up.
