    Inkscape Tutorial

    Post  Dutch on Thu Sep 09, 2010 1:05 am

    Before you start designing decals we must cover the basics of Inkscape.

    -The Draw Bezier and Straight Lines

    After selecting this tool you want to left click to create a node and it'll take a couple nodes to create a rough outline of your shape. You may notice a red line this is to help you create your desired shape.

    -Edit Paths by Nodes

    Will help you refine your rough outline into the desired shape. Simply click Edit paths by nodes then select your outline and push or pull a line segment till it's correct.


    To move nodes around simply click edit paths by nodes. Select your outline,left click and hold on a node then drag your line.

    -Stroke Style
    Select the paint brush located on the top tool. A window should open and select stroke style. Make sure to click on your line. Topically 2.000 and 3.000 PX are the stranded line widths I use for all my decals.

    -Tools before we start.
