Creating Enamel Pins: A Step By Step with GachaPins

with Creator, Nicole

WHAT IS THIS CLASS ABOUT?

Have you ever wanted to turn your art into enamel pins? Follow my step by step guide from design tips, setting up your proofs, and an overview of the production and manufacturing process! We'll go over each step of the process, so let's start making enamel pins together!

WHO IS THIS CLASS FOR?

Do you want to learn how to efficiently turn your sketches/drawings into enamel pins? This class is for anyone who is interested in the process of creating production ready pin proofs from beginning to end. You might be an aspiring pin seller, or maybe you just want your art to become a pin for your own collection!

WHAT WILL THE STUDENTS ACHIEVE?

By the end of my class, you will have gained a clear understanding of the design, communication, and manufacturing processes of enamel pin making. Using primarily Adobe Photoshop, we'll have created a design (or a few) that will be ready to be submitted to a manufacturer and made into your very own enamel pins!

Step 1: Applying Design Principles and Techniques

Step 2: Transforming Any Drawing Into a Pin-Ready Proof

Step 3: How to Find a Manufacturer That Is Right For You and Your Project

Meet Your Creator
Hi everyone!
 
My name is Nicole, creator of GachaPins! Currently, I create simple illustrations and sell enamel pins and other merchandise made from those illustrations! My professional art background began in college, where I majored in concept art design for games, followed by various freelance and studio work. When I started my GachaPins business, I had a lot of questions, and even more friends, family, and peers who were more than willing to help! I want to create this class, so that you can learn some of the things that I’ve picked up during my ongoing pin making journey. I can’t wait to share my humble learnings with everyone, so please join me as we make some enamel pins together!!
