About This Class


In this class I will take you step by step through the process of turning a hand painted watercolour into a seamless repeat pattern tile using only your iPad and the Pixelmator app.

We will cover all sorts of things including:

  • What to think of while designing your initial artwork,
  • Photographing the painting
  • Adjustments
  • Removing the background
  • Making it seamless
  • Testing the pattern
  • Exporting

When you have finished the class you will be able to confidently make pattern tiles on the go without access to your scanner or computer.

This class is suitable for anyone from complete beginners to surface pattern designers looking for a way of working independently on the iPad.

With thanks to Pixelmator
