|When you attempt a design project, especially if you are on the Graphic Products course, it is very important that you display a full range of graphic techniques. These techniques are divided into two areas; colouring techniques and drawing techniques. (Use techniques that are not listed if they are appropriate). Tick the columns on the right as you work through your project.|
2H pencils - Use ordinary pencils to draw and sketch.
Colouring pencils - Use pencils to colour drawings and to draw the outline of designs.
Overlays/backing - Use card on top of card, you could glue together two different pieces of card and then place a design brief or something similar on the top. The card will be a backing.
Colour placed on card - Try shading card with a coloured pencil, use a dark colour of card and shade it with a light shade of pencil. Use the result to back text/writing.
Composite drawings - See the examples in class. Drawings constructed from different colours of card can be quite striking.
Line Shading - see flat surface examples
draw designs that are ‘in bits’, or ‘taken apart’ so
that all the parts of the design can be seen easily.
