Create Radial Tie-dye looks in Photoshop

In this online Video Course you will learn how to:

  • Digitally create textile design techniques that are usually achieved outside of the computer by dying of fabrics, dying yarns, and by weaving yarns in specific formations. Additionally create watercolor looks digitally that do not require expensive papers and colors. It's amazing what you can achieve inside of the Adobe applications that we already use and the type of free resources and tools that are available online to use and integrate into your design flow.

What You'll Learn in this 1 Hour 30 min Course:


Ikat Creation with Photoshop and Illustrator

Create the ikat effect for interesting depth and texture to any components that you would like to use in your repeats. I will work with simple shapes like diamonds and circles to get you started, But the possibilities are endless.


Watercolor paintings in photoshop

once you open up the template that I provide and use the right tools to create watercolor paintings in photoshop, you will be amazed how easy it is. More importantly you will come to love the digital ("fake") look of watercolor. 


Plaid texture creation in Photoshop

The "magic" of plaids lays in the little textured look. many ways of creating this look from scratch do not lend themselves to be used over and over again or with different colorways. use my templates or start creating a texture collection of your own and don't Start from scratch each time.


Tie-dye adventure from Illustrator to Photoshop

Photoshop lends itself brilliantly to create the organized mess that we after when creating a tie-dye look. In this rather experimental method try and tweak it to your liking and come up with unexpected results time after time.
