  • How to paint a t-shirt. Warp Speed Galaxy Shirt - Step 1
    Step 1

    Pour Bleach into a spray bottle and water it down just a little. (Not too much.)
    Spray bleach onto the front of your shirt. You don't want to bleach the whole thing, but you want to puddle most of the bleach in the "center" of your galaxy and spread it out from there.

    Once you feel your bleach has taken enough color out, rinse your shirt good with warm water.

    I also went back with my bleach pen and doodled a few stars and swirls.

    Now it's time to get out your paints!Use whatever colors you like best, I used Navy Blue, Purple and Pink.

    Start with your darkest color (blue) and apply it around he edges of parts of your galaxy.
    Next the purple, which I added around the blue. Then the pink, I applied the pink next to the purple as well as on top of my bleached areas.

    The trick when painting is to make sure the edges of your paint are blended in good! That will make it look the best!

    Using white paint and a small brush, paint on little stars as well as little white dots here and there.

    I also took a brush and flicked white paint across my shirt. Not much, but enough to have tiny white splatters on it.

    I tried to make it look like the new enterprise in the reboot movies. I also added a few motion lines as if the ship is going into warp.

i am going to try this. Did you dilute the paint any? or mix it with a textile medium? It is really awesome!
