My dear cousin just became a mother and we couldn’t be happier. One of the things I made to welcome this new addition to the family is this star chart I want to show you today.
It’s pretty similar to something I did some time ago (in a former life) but more… astronomically accurate in a way.
I’ve always been into space. When we went to California in 2012, we booked a tour at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena. And of course we’ve been to the NASA-INTA premises here in Spain, right outside Madrid. Not as cool as Pasadena, but fun to see anyway. And closer.
There are a lot of tutorials out there about how to space print. This was a trend two or three years ago so you’ll find plenty of examples out there. They are mainly made with bleach and spray paint. I wasn’t sure I’d be able to find spray fabric paint here in my city, so I decided to try with the closest thing I could find: the Playcolor One textile solid poster paint, by Instant.
I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to get a decent detail level with this paint, since it’s meant for kids, but I must say I’m very happy with the results.
