Team fortress 2 class patches by bionic-dingo Team fortress 2 class patches by bionic-dingo
A quick and dirty tutorial on a relatively easy way to do faux silkscreening. As I've pointed out in the tutorial it's a good technique for creating all kinds of diffirent graphics. I just chose to do class patches because they're a relatively simple intro project.

and no, I didn't include patterns with this. you're smart kids, you'll figure it out. If you can't or you just don't feel like it you can just find a high-res image of the desired template, print it and do a graphite transfer. It may also be possible to print directly onto the paper with an inkjet printer (NOT LASER.) though I haven't personally tried it.

Feel free to let me know if you have any questions.

Um I looked up freezer paper on the mIcheal's website and "non- stick parchment " came up, is that it?

You actually want to hit a grocery store to get that stuff. Even if you could find it at a micheals they'd charge way too much.

Anyway it's just called "Freezer paper" and you'll find it near the tin foil and wax paper.

um question whats the matte side?
Reply
:iconbionic-dingo:
"matte" is the opposite of 'shiny'. So if you look at your paper, you will notice one side is shiny, and the other is not.

I really need to buy some freezer paper. ;D Do you have a preferred paint?

I used acrylic cause it's what I already had. anything that won't run when put on the fabric or wash off after it's dried will do.
