Feel the rainbow waves?
Like the original better? You could paint extra smudges in darkblue with a paintbrush. Or you could even buy one on Etsy by twostringjane.

My tank is more of an ombre type technique.

    Step 1

    Buy a white racer back tank top.

    Wash it and leave it wet!

    Put a piece of cardboard inside of the tank top so your paint does not run through.

    Cover workspace with plenty of newspaper.

    Repeat these steps for darkblue and red.

    Red left side of blue and darkblue right side of blue.

    Leave to dry, you could speed this process up with a blow dryer. DON'T REMOVE THE CARDBOARD INSIDE!

    When dry iron your top, then wash in washing machine (cold setting) to wash out excess fabric paint.

Thanks Pam ^^; I used a cotton top. I checked my fabric paint label and it says washed cotton, linens and most mixed fibers. I guess you should just check yours Happy
