DIY GALAXY SKIRT

Okay, so I was never any good at art, in fact, I was so bad that my art teacher once laughed at one of my paintings. I thought the stick men were a nice touch ... ha ha. Anyway, despite my terrible art skills I really wanted to make myself a galaxy skirt, hope you like it! :)

How I made it

I stated off with a basic plain black skirt. I didn't want to buy and expensive one just in case it went wrong so used this one from H&M that cost $3.99. They sell them in Primark for $3 but the material is very thin, and a little easy to see through, and quite flimsy.

Bleaching

 

The first thing i did was to spray my skirt with bleach. I used a spray bottle filled with watered down thick bleach, about half bleach to half water. It takes the colour out leaving it a nice red colour. It only took a few minutes so had to keep an eye on it :) I then washed the skirt to stop the bleach from reacting anymore and left it to dry overnight.

Painting

 

After doing some research, I found that people like to use acrylic paints to paint clothes as they're a cheaper alternative to fabric paint. I wasn't sure if they'd wash off but had been told they stay on quite well so thought I'd have a go using them along with a sponge to give the right texture :)

I put a plastic bag inside my skirt to stop the paint running to the back and started painting! I used the darker colours first then the lighter ones and kept building it up.

For the stars I used a toothbrush to flick on white paint (yes, I used a chopstick to stir my pain ha ha.)

I then left it to dry...

I feel the colours looked better when it had dried :)

I then painted the back...

This is my finished skirt; it looks like it was made by a 5 year old child... ha ha! I think it could have used more blue but I guess as it was my first attempt, it will do :)
