\"For this DIY you will need: a garment (I picked a simple black T-shirt), Hairdryer, Bleach, Water, spray bottle and a paint brush.\"

\"Mix up a bleach solution of 1 part bleach, 3 parts water and fill your spray bottle with it.\"

\"Next I laid out the T-shirt (on a safe surface with nothing around it to avoid damage from bleach splatters). I also placed a plastic bag inside the T-shirt so the bleach didn’t seep through to the back of the garment, but you can choose whether you want to do this or not.\"

\"Let the spraying commence... I did a few light sprays then used the hair dryer to accelerate the bleaching process, so I could see my pattern emerging.  Drying in between your sprays allows you to see where to spray next to create an effective pattern.

To really create the galaxy/cosmic effect I then twisted the fabric in the middle of the t-shirt to form a swirl/spiral. I then sprayed more heavily in the middle to produce the lighter centre. Then use the hairdryer it really helps!\"

\"As you can see after the t-shirt is flattened the constellation effect is more obvious.\"

\"For a final touch I then used the paint brush to slowly drip a stronger bleach solution (1 part water,1 part bleach- you only need a tiny amount for this) to give the effect of individual brighter stars (these i dripped close to the centre -as seen here!)\"
