Here’s an example of the kind of image based tutorials I’m going to start offering on my Patreon! This one is obviously using the same technique as the plaid one I’ve shared before, I just wanted to show more uses of it (I can share it again this week)! I'll be offering videos and tutorials both for cosplayers and people who want to learn more about sewing!
This is just airbrushing a pattern onto fabric. You can do this with most any kind of fabric, I used spandex for this one! I finished up a commission of Viridi (from Kid Icarus) this week, this was how I made fabric for her leggings and arm sleeves!
1) Use painters masking tape for your patterns, in any shapes you need! Measure to lay them out accurately.
2) Airbrush your color on!
"But Mandy, why purple on green??" Whelp, because when you blend purple paint with green paint, you end up with a much more natural shade of dark green than mixing black with it. Same applies here! MAGIC ༼∩☉ل͜☉༽⊃━☆ﾟ. * ･ ｡ﾟ
3) Let dry completely, and pull off your tape! I like to reuse the tape once on another piece of fabric. The stick is nice enough to work at least twice, saves tape and 💵💰💵💰!!
4) Cut the pattern shape down to what you need, sew that baby up!
I will be sharing lots more tutorials and tutorial videos only available on my Patreon, if you enjoy this kind of thing I hope you will consider becoming a member with me 🌹🌻🌺 I'll also offer prints, Google hangouts (we can video chat!), and more!
Patreon: www.patreon.com/AmazonMandy*♥ also thank you so much for all of the kind messages/comments encouraging me about this. I have so much self doubt over Patreon and I don’t expect it to go anywhere far since I’m not as ‘titillating’ as other cosplayers, but I’ll do my best. I love you all for the push!<3
After a really long time debating if this was something I wanted to try, a couple of very awesome people pushed me into it. Which I'm really grateful for, because putting yourself out there and a dollar value on your time is really, really taxing and hard.
I want to offer everything from sewing tutorials, mailing you patterns, prints, and more! As time goes by, I’ll be very open to suggestions and requests from my subscribers as to what they’d like to see more of!
Check out my dorky intro video to learn a lot more about it!
