Step 5: Glow in the dark paint time: Glow in the dark BLUE!

So I used a blue glow in the dark paint but you are free to use any glow in the dark product.

This is not a necessary step but because it is the galaxy and galaxies glow I thought it would be a cool effect!

Glow paint is pretty faint so you need to build it up a lot.

Again put a dime size amount of glow paint onto your palette.

Take your sponge and dab it into the paint and press on the paint to all the painted areas very lightly and let it dry.

Repeat that a few more times till it's all glossed over but not too glossed where you can't see the vivid colors beneath(the blues, purples, pinks and whites)

(The photo was taken after it was dry)

<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.
