DIGITALISING A PAINTING

I am trying to create a graphic for my clothing brand using photoshop. I was wondering if there is a way to remove the background but keep the more faded effect around the edges as a png. Or even replicate the painting digitally to make the colours more prominent and less pixelatedIMG_2297.JPG.

When you talk about clothing that implies actual printing, so the file format png should be a non-starter. 

Have you talked with the print shop about the data they need yet? 

Will it be silkscreem or something else? 

What will be the color of the textiles?

It will be printed by DTG on a black tee. A high quality png of the artwork is all that is needed. However I only want the arms and head while still keeping the effect.

So that process prints white? 

Who creates the white »underprint«? 

 

A combination of Blend Modes, Blend if-settings, Groups, … can be used for something like this. 

It does little more than Luminosity Masks but it maintains editability for the image in the Smart Object without having to redo the Layr Mask/s.

Simplest way I can think of is to add a layer mask on the image and use a brush tool to remove the areas you dont want printed.

I doubt that will screen print well. I'd run a test as-is, make separations and screens, and try it before going any further.

Ah I missed that detail. I've heard that there are cost and durability concerns compared to traditional screen printing. This would not work as a logo design, it could be printed but that's going to be limited too. Traditional screen printing is most effective with large color blocks.

Do you know how white is handled in this process when printing on a black garment?

But how is the white underprinting determined for something like the OP asked for – fairly bright colored content that is supposed to fade out onto the dark garment? 

I suppose the print shop may just do what they feel most prudent (and having experience they may well provide as good a result as reasonably possible) but the result may be hard to predict.

This is a rough mock-up of the project, I opted to just go for a solid graphic. Any tips are appreciated.
