hey you little crazy girl! I love what you do, the photo you are sitting at your table, selling stuffs is amazing! can I take the picture of your nebula shirt for my tumblr? (I’ll put a link to your website). So much love <3 (by the way, fabunebulous is a lovely word!!)
Thank you!^^ I hope I could find such a thing in France… (the shop I go to buy acrylic is so small, they thought I was an alien when I talked about painting on my shoes….!)
First, you need to have these things :
- acrylic (with blue, red, yellow, black and white, you can have every color you want)
- brushes (different sizes, hard and soft)
- water (a lot)
- the stuff you want to paint
You will need at the first time : dark blue et black. With your larger brush paint some kind of cloud. Add a lot of water in your paint, the fabric should absorb and mix the colors together. Let it dry. You should have something like that :
Mix your colors to make a light purple. When your fabric is totaly dry, with a lot a water, draw the nebula base everywhere you want. You don’t need to be precise, just apply some touch of color.
Then, add a bit of white (water++ again) sometimes in the center of your nebula, sometimes around. You can even put a bit (a little bit) of white in the dark blue (but not everywhere!)Add also some touch of red at some places.For the result to be more natural, you can take a large brush and put water over all your fabric. The colors will be mixed together. Let it dry again.
At the end, paint little crosses (stars) and with a tooth brush (or a heavy brush) make little white points everywhere (I don’t really how to explain it but you’ve got to scratch, to rub the brush full of acrylic with your nail, sorry this part is not clear at all)You can add touch of lighter blue if you find it’s too dark. Put some touch of white (just a bit on a heavy brush, without water) around your nebula. You can try to draw some kind of spirals with the white…
For the result to be very nice, paint on cotton (this is denim on the photo and the result is not as beautiful as my shoes I did), don’t be affraid to put a lot of water on your painting, let dry when this is said you have to let it dry (I know this is hard to wait, but put some nail polish, watch a movie, go shopping, or use you hair dryer if you really can’t wait!)
I hope I was clear enough, again sorry for the mistakes I surely did, but I’m french…. :)You can’t send me some links of your work, I would be glad to have a look!
You’re so nice girl! Your tumblr is really amazing too! (but the food you post make me hungry all the time, and that’s really bad!) <3
Sure! I’ll do that soon!
Thank you for being so nice! <3
Your tumblr is fantastic!
The clothes come from several different shops, but there are designers such as Christopher Kane, who sell a lot of nebula stuffs! You can also try to do it yourself, I will put a tutorial soon! Check youreyeslie.com and blackmilk.com you could find some treasures there! (sorry for my english… I’m french!) <3
