Watercolor is beautiful in surface pattern design and right now it's very popular! There are many types of repeat patterns and many ways to go about creating them. This class will help you get started if you are a complete beginner. It will also show you one way of getting products printed with your repeating designs using the company Spoonflower.
I share my techniques for using watercolor motifs to create simple, basic repeating patterns.
I start by demonstrating how to create a simple, but precise dot pattern using watercolor swatch circles.
Once the pattern is created I share how to test it and how to prepare and upload a file to Spoonflower so that you can have fabric, gift wrap or wallpaper printed with your designs.
To give you an idea of how to create a less rigid type of pattern, I also share my process for creating a simple tossed floral repeat. I then demonstrate how to test, find flaws and revise the pattern you have created.
