#throwbacksketch :DAY13: J'adore Paris

Today i am going to share one of my most favourite briefs i did at university! For this module we had to use heat transfer dyes, heat transfer papers, fabric paints, inks and crayons - i was always running away from the print room at Uni, i preferred the CAD room or whatever i could do at my desk. Print room was always scary, and because i used to be so nervous and  in a state of panic that i would always ruin something but anyways to pass this module i had to try out certain products in the print room to do the final piece.

I had to test and try a dozen of fabric paints - mixing, diluting, using them directly from the bottle to do colour swatches so when i come to doing the final piece i know exactly what colours i want and how to achieve them in less time.

Here is an example of using heat transfer dyes and fabric paints - i directly painted on paper to then heat transfer on a variety of fabrics to see the pigment result on each fabric
Design transferred on fabric
I also tried to print on already printed fabrics as well as clean, new fabrics - this is a development stage

I then tried heat transfer paper and fabric crayons - the heat transfer papers are amazing if you want to get a block colour design

This isn't my final piece but its my most fav piece of work i did because its all hand painted, every little detail - took me ages and i then transferred it on fabric and honestly in person, it looks beautiful!

Another little section of mini hand painted stamp like images - transferred on fabric - the pigments on this fabric comes out amazing !One of the best things about Uni is the amount of techniques, products, tools you can use to achieve a design is like nothing else! 

I also did some black ink illustrations for my final piece 

Collage - fashion illustrations, some text about Paris and what inspires me 

This particular design is really similar to my final piece - it made up of heat transfer papers - i used crafts knife to carefully cut the triangle sections out of the Eiffel tower to achieve this design

Close to my final piece - it includes imagery that i associate with Paris such as Chanel, blue and white stripes, bright colours, Eiffel Tower, Stamps ,ETC

Heat transfer dyes on tissue paper - another development study towards my final piece - the illustrations are not accurate on purpose because its just to experiment for sketchbook work.

So that was some of my sketchbook work for this brief, Hope it inspires you!
