'The Flying Dutchman' design project-screen print on cotton
'The Flying Dutchman' design project-breakdown and distressing
Based on the opera design project, the character is the captain of the ghost crew who is been travelling by sea for over 2000 years. The design for the character is layered with clothes from different time and places around the word, the coat specifically is a navy military coat from the 18th century that has been wore and used for centuries and is been damaged by salty water, military actions and every day use.
To get the correct look this coat has been dyed, bleached and burned in different spots, the salt and water damaged spot had been recreated using a series of different techniques and materials.
