Damn me for not living in the United States , but I guess thats just life .
I’ve always liked this tank and i’ve been meaning to do it for a long time . So , here it goes :

You will need :

  • A black shirt , cotton .
  • White fabric paint / but if you don’t have that you can use acrylic paint , but be careful because some acrylic paint can rub off the shirts .
  • a sponge
  • A cardboard box (eg : cereal box cardboard ) where there are a waterproof surface on one side .
  • Fabric Scissors
  • Chalk
  • Masking / scotch tape

First , Based on this picture of the actual tank and plan out how big or small you want the moon shapes to be . Mine had a diameter of 5.5 cm , but really , its based on preference

The cut holes into a hardboard waterproof paper . with the right spaces between then  ( mine :1 cm )

Take your acrylic paint and a sponge and dab randomly in the made hole .(also according to the picture)

To make the craters on the moon so that it doesnt look like your 4 year old brother painted it . . .
1. paint the first coat
2. Cut random pieces of duct tape and stick them on the dry paint , (Its always better to place them more abundantly at one specific corner )
3. Dab more paint over the duct tape .
4. You can lift the duct tape right off after  .

If the craters look too squar-ish and weird , just dab over them .

Stretch the edges of the sleeves .
Being that they’re cotton , They fold in easily .
