Product Details In this class we will be focusing on hand painting a design in gouache, scanning it and opening it in Photoshop where I show you the process for turning it into a digital file ready for printing.
Being able to turn your own paintings into digital files that are ready for printing onto a product like a greeting card or tea towel is a fabulous thing.


Maybe you have a pile of designs already painted sitting there doing nothing as your unsure of that next step to make them into a printable file. Or maybe you have some brilliant designs in your head that you'd like to have printed on a product.
