Primary TechniquePainting



  • 100% cotton white matinee jacket for this project one for a baby of 3-6 months was used

  1. Before starting with the design project, wash the jacket in baby shampoo and rinse it thoroughly in cold water to remove any sizing agent from the material. Do not add fabric softener.

  3. Put the jacket flat on the working surface.
  4. Fold the printer paper in half and slide it inside the jacket, between the back and front sides of the jacket this will prevent the ink from staining the back side. Keep this paper in place until you have completed the design.
  5. Put the printed design on top of the printer paper, underneath the left front side of the jacket, so that the design will show through on the front side.
  6. Trace the design with a pencil first.
  7. Now draw the design with the black pen.
  8. Color the chick with the yellow pen.
  9. Use the orange pen for the beak and to add some color to the feet.
  10. Use the black and brown pens to draw short criss-cross lines over the chick’s outline and over the wing, to create the appearance of a fluffy little chick.
