How To Make Your Own Patch The Easiest Way

For original article click here

Solovei (The Nightingale) is a friend from Moldova who draws awesome DIY punk related and antifascist artwork for bands, collectives and projects from many ex-Soviet Union states, including Russia. He also makes his own punk patches, using label paper and acrylic paint for fabric.

And here’s a little tutorial on how to make your own DIY patch the way Solovei does.

For those who are not familiar, the band of choice for this do-it-yourself patch, Deviation, was a legendary political punk band from Belarus. The band was formed in 1993 in Grodno but played their first live in February 1996 at an antifascist festival in Minsk. Later on they became the most famous Belarusian punk band inspiring many other projects, both in musical and political terms. I think that Deviation called it quits in 2009 but the last time I’ve heard about them was the news about their bass player, Andrei Pachobut, being arrested for taking part in an illegal demonstration in support of Polish ethnic minority rights.

But now let’s get back to the tutorial. Here’s how to make your own punk patch all by yourself.

Firstly, we’re starting with a sheet of label paper.


You also need to have the picture you want to get traced on the paper.


You don’t even need a printer to trace the picture onto the sheet.




When you’re ready with tracing the picture on the sheet, you just need to stick it on the fabric.


And then iron it…


And now the hardest part… Cutting the image, the DIY way.



Next step is putting a layer of black acrylic paint over the image.



Two layers of white paint:


Wait around 2 hours before taking the paper off.


Then the patch is ready. But don’t forget to iron it.


So that’s how you make a DIY patch for your jacket. If you like it, here are some other DIY patches and stuff created by Solovei using the very same technique.
