DIY Galaxy.

So. Because the galaxy is so beautiful and because the night sky is pure magic and all that we decided to try out and turn Emma’s leggings into a galaxy. It was fairly easy.

Here is what you will need:

a pair of legging, a t shirt, whatever u want to apply it to basically (black is what we tried, go for black)

small pieces of sponge

fabric colours or acrylic (we used fabric) and water (we used basically different shades and mixes of blue, red and white)

hard brush and fine brush


What you do:

you spread your garment. empty some colour into a bowl without much water and then take colour with your small sponge pieces and apply it to random areas in tiny circular movements that leave you with small clouds here and there. do exactly the same with different colours. next add more water and preferably dark colours (blue or purple depending on what you want). now with a bigger piece of sponge that must soak well and hold lots of water and less colour go over everything, like covering it all up (you have to do this so the colours and clouds dont stand out and give it a military look but a nice and wholesome universe appearance). you can repeat the covering process with another colour in some of the areas. finally you need some stars. dip the hard brush into the white colour (no water at all this time) and rub your finger against the brush so you spray little white spots all over, more at some areas and less on others. when you get a big spot use your fine brush to turn it into a star (like a cross).  then you let it dry, and ofc you hand wash it so it gets softer when you wear it.
