Here are some practical tips to remember when creating artwork with a child.
- Measure roughly 9cm from the top of your A4 paper.
- Older children can write their name and draw a self-portrait in the top section. Top section is for portrait and name. The artwork should go in the bottom square section.
- For younger children, please write clearly the child’s name on the back top left hand corner.
- Now fold the top section back to create a square area for the artwork.
If you are preparing artwork for print on the product, remember that the self-portrait and the name will be printed on the back. Please use thick bold pens.
- Brighter and bolder the colours reproduce the best.
- We advice you to use colours to the background.
- You can use various techniques such as paint, tissue paper, collaging with different materials and ﬁnger painting.
- Pencil or pencil crayons, biro, light water colours and fluorescent colours – they will not reproduce well.
- No glitter and no bulky items – they are not good for scanners.
- Metallic colours and sequins becomes reflective during scanning.
