I surprised even myself that I managed to squeeze this DIY in! Though I underestimated just how long it would take, luckily I could let it sit overnight.
The hairdryer helps a lot, but even then I had to hold the heat over one place for more than a few minutes at times.
The ratio of bleach to water is crucial in colouring and intensity.
I have learned a few new tricks I'd like to do for another shirt (an improved one) that will combine a brush technique I use with ink.
Either way, take a peek at the results, and let me know if you like it as much as I do!
**I am working on a method to brighten the colour.
• Cotton t-shirt
• Spray Bottle
• Hairdryer (optional)
• Paintbrush (optional)
• Plastic bags (optional)
- Line the inside of the t-shirt with plastic bags (if you don't want the bleach to bleed to the other side)
- Fill the spray bottle with 1 part bleach : 3 parts water
- Spray a general area of the shirt (blow-dry to see an emerging pattern)
- Pinch or swirl the center of your galaxy
- Generously spray the your pinched/swirled fabric (blow-dry)
- Repeat steps 3&5 for the outcome you'd like
- Dip a brush into a 1 part bleach : 1 part water solution and dot stars
