Beginner 3-5 Hours
  • Black T-shirt
  • Acrylic paint (white, cobalt, purple, pink)
  • Sponge brushes
  • Plastic plate
  • Cardboard
  • Paint pen

  1. Place a piece of cardboard inside the T-shirt so the paint does not bleed through.
  2. Squirt each paint color on the plastic plate to create your palette.
  3. Dab small amounts of paint onto the shirt (it’s important to paint light layers to build up the colors). Use a mixture of the colors, starting with a white base and adding the other colors. Use a mixture of techniques to get the most natural look (dabbing, smearing, and twisting a little).
  4. Continue to add layers until you reach the brightness you desire.
  5. Use the bleach pen to spray and dab white paint onto the shirt. You can also draw stars with the pen.
  6. Once your design is dry, you can use the paint pen to draw your favorite star constellation on the galaxy. Start with the stars, then connect the stars with lines.
