Step 6: Placing the stars and planets throughout the "sky"!

Here's the fun part: Placing the stars!

Cluster the stars where the paint is the most vibrant and brightest(Pink) and gradually lessen stars where the colors darken.

The black parts of your sweatshirts should be very sparse or should not have any stars at all.

Make different size stars!

I used my white t-shirt paint and my glow in the dark blue t-shirt paint to make the stars.

Have fun with it, just don't add too much paint and make sure you have room to add planets!

I drew circles, diamonds, rings and whatnots throughout my "galaxy" but feel free to do anything you like!

After you paint all the stars wait about 15 minutes before painting planets.
<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.
