MAYA IN THE MOMENT TEEN CRAFT: Glowing Corset Halloween Top

I've been craving to use the Tulip Glow in the Dark 3D Paints for Halloween, but I wanted to do something really cool and not cheesy. This is what I came up with...

I took a black fitted T-shirt and slipped it over a cardboard form and taped the back with clear tape so the shirt wouldn't slip.

I then pulled out my favorite paints!

I used a piece of chalk to outline where I wanted to make the first line. After that, I just kept adding rows of designs. It took a couple hours. I suggest a good chick flick to keep your mind entertained as you make dot after dot after dot...Every so often I would hold it up to make sure it was all evenly spaced. I let it dry for several hours.





After that, it was ready to go. I love how it turned out and I'm really looking forward to wearing it out at night to a party or just goofing around with my friends. I think it would be really wild to do a whole pair of jeans like this too.

Craft on! Click here for our giveaway!

Very Very nice. Fun idea.
I like to use plastic clothes pins to keep my t-shirts taught while painting them. Also if you do a little circle motion when lifting the fabric paint tube from your dots, there will be less of a pointy peak to them. That is how I get my braille dots to be so smooth and uniform ;)

What an inspiring idea! Keep up the great work, and please visit www.facebook.com/CanadianRAISED

V-e-r-y cool!! Am inspired for a haunted house costume for my tween. Does the paint really glow in the dark? Or just under black light? How long does the glow last? Thanks and keep on creating such fun stuff.
