The Horror of Tartan
The following steps will give you a very acceptable tartan... bearing in mind that I really don't know much about actual historical tartans. If you want a specific tartan, you may have to adjust the process, but for most purposes just changing the colours will work fine. The specific colours I'm using here will give you a result like a generic hunting tartan.
And that's it. you've got your tartan.
Don't mistake me, this is not a technique that will compensate for a clumsy painter, but as long as you're even moderately light and steady of hand, this series of steps will give you a good result every time.
