  • How to make a pair of tights / pantyhose. Skeleton Tights - Step 1
    Step 1

    search google for pictures of "skeleton tights" for a guideline and using whatever you have to draw on the fabric (chalk, pencil, etc), mark out the bones on one of the legs of the tights.

  • Step 2

    start painting in the bones on the leg of the tights with the white fabric paint.

  • Step 3

    before it dries, fold the leg over so it is face down on the other leg of the tights, this will transfer some paint to the other leg which will give you a guideline on where to paint on the other
    leg. this will mean that the two sides will be symmetrical.

  • Step 4

    you will need to use a good few coats of paint to make the white opaque. leave to dry and you now have skeleton tights :)

it's gorgeous!!! wouldn't it be better for the paint to wear the tights and then paint? or maybe it depend of the tights (if it's large, the composition etc...)

I've been meaning to make a pair for a while, just concerned about the paint leaking to the other side.

Thanks c:

no i wore them first to mark out with chalk where my knee ended and whatnot so i would have a general idea, then i took them off, drew in the bones and painted it in Happy
