DIY - GALAXY T SHIRT


I've been after a galaxy inpsired t-shirt for ages now, i've not had much luck as the one's i've found would cost me a bomb. Er no thanks!

So i did some research, and looked at doing it myself. Then i came across this post and thought yes! Exactly what im after. So i went into Primark and brought xxL mens black tee for £2. That way if i mess it up i'll have a nice big comfy t-shirt to sleep in.

I got the bleach out, some hair bands and latex gloves and set to work.
I tied the bands around parts of the t-shirt, some bigger then others, poured bleach on and rubbed in. As you can see the bleach took straight away. I left it for a few mins and then rinsed the bleach until water ran clear.

It's now outside drying and looks like this...


This is not the final tee, i want to add acrylic paints to it when it's dry and maybe some more bleach. I hope then i'll make it look really cool!
