I had a bunch of old jeans and decided to cut them up and make a picture with jean squares

Step 1: You Will Need

Picture of You Will Need

-Jeans or any fabric. For Bill I used jean and raincoat.
-weld bond or glue
- Metre stick
-Patience as I have 18 hours into bill.

For Bill I needed 329 squares. I used jean for his paints. The smooth part of the rain jacket for the skin and the reverse of the coat for the black lines. Mark and cut how every many squares you need.

Step 2: Make a Grid on Your Canvas

Using your Metre stick draw a grid on your canvas and fill in your outline.

Step 3: Glue the Squares

I glued the jean first, the skin second, and the black outline for last. Once dry paint white. And background black. Once that's dry I used a weldbond/water mixture to make a clear coat and covered the whole canvas

Step 4: Paint
