  5. 5. Think what would look good on a t-shirt
  6. 6. <ul><li>The picture needs to be based around </li></ul><ul><li>Try to make your picture eye-catching </li></ul><ul><li>Use bold, simple shapes – don’t make the pictures too detailed or over-complicated </li></ul><ul><li>Use strong, bright, fresh colours </li></ul><ul><li>Think about the size of the picture in relation to the size of the t-shirt </li></ul><ul><li>Think of using patterns or repeated images </li></ul>Your design needs to be:
  7. 7. Design considerations If your design is going to be symmetrical you need to know where the middle lines and centre are before you start Identify your picture area on the t-shirt The central chest is the normal area but you might want to use the sleeve areas or the back of the t-shirt Try to imagine what the t-shirt will look like on and try to imagine where the creases of the fabric will be and where the picture won’t be seen in full The colour of the t-shirt material will be white as it is the easiest to use as all shades of colour will stand out well against white
  8. 8. Planning your design <ul><li>Firstly plan out your design on a piece of A4 paper </li></ul><ul><li>Use a lead pencil to begin with </li></ul><ul><li>If you can, find images to help get you started from the resources you have available – books/magazines or perhaps from the internet </li></ul><ul><li>You could copy/trace images and them adapt them </li></ul><ul><li>Be prepared to make changes to your design at the beginning as your ideas might change once you’ve started </li></ul><ul><li>Think about keeping the shapes you use simple and not too detailed to make it easy for you to paint it on the actual t-shirt </li></ul><ul><li>Think about what colours you are going to use </li></ul><ul><li>Once you are happy with your design plan </li></ul><ul><li>you can transfer it onto the actual t-shirt </li></ul><ul><li>using a light coloured fabric pen/chalk or </li></ul><ul><li>charcoal pencil </li></ul>
  9. 9. What colours can be used <ul><li>Fabric paint comes in lots of different colours but can be mixed just like poster paint so you can use whatever colours you like </li></ul><ul><li>Normal paint techniques can be used to apply paint </li></ul><ul><li>Once the paint is dried and fixed by ironing, the t-shirt can be worn and washed again and again </li></ul><ul><li>Textures can be created by using sponges, coarse brushes or </li></ul><ul><li>splattered on but mind your other clothes or surroundings! </li></ul><ul><li>Other materials include marker pens, highlighter pens, </li></ul><ul><li>crayons and 3D embossed squashy gel type pens </li></ul><ul><li>Ribbons, sequins, feather or other things can be stuck or sown </li></ul><ul><li>onto the t-shirts but they might not be able to be washed and </li></ul><ul><li>will be ‘one off’ creations </li></ul>
  10. 11. Use of stencils <ul><li>You might want to think about using a cut out stencil for large areas of colour and use a sponge to apply the paint – this a quick and effective way of applying paint </li></ul><ul><li>You might want to find an image and copy/trace it to get the general shape of something and then adapt it </li></ul>
  11. 12. Use block printing <ul><li>You could make your own printing blocks or use a potato to print on to your t-shirt. It is a quick and easy way to create some really bright and eye-catching pictures </li></ul>
  12. 13. To make a good design Keep design simple Not too detailed No words, just a picture Clean bold use of colour
  13. 14. Make your design stand out from the crowd
