Designing Currency

Published Friday, June 20, 2014.
Last updated: Friday, June 20, 2014

We are going to be designing our own currencies.  We are going to create imaginative bank notes using watercolour paints, watercolour pencils and ballpoint pens.


What will you include in your final design?

How will it represent your country?

How will you keep the design simple and effective?


Have a look at some of these beautiful bank notes from around the world to give you some inspiration:

I got my inspiration from these 2 notes:
STEP 1: Try out different designs


STEP 2: Sketch your final design on to the watercolour paper. Remember to keep it simple!



STEP 3: Use a watercolour wash to paint the background and fill in blocks of color.




STEP 4: Use watercolour pencils to fill in detail and for small sections.



STEP 5:  Use a fine brush dipped in water to blend some of the pencil lines.


STEP 6: Outline numbers and fine details with coloured ball-point pen to make them stand out.



Enjoy creating your own beautiful bank notes of the world!

Cheap and awesome! Use your brain, buy our train!
