I decided to make anAndy Warhol style painting. I wanted to do something with Clone Trooper Helmets. Of course, once the artwork was finished, I had to get a local Storm Trooper to hold it for my photo, lol.
Step 1: Getting Started
To make this, I started out with a piece of 16x20 Canson Art Board. My hubby helped out by making the lines with a pencil for the grids while I was cutting the images out. I selected my paint that matched the cardstock papers I was using, they are Pool Blue, Bright Yellow and Valentine Pink.
For the clone troopers, I used an SVG cut file. These were cut with the Cricut Expression electronic cutting machine.Once I cut the bases out, I layed them down on the grids to determine what color needed to be painted in each background. This way, you can make sure you don't overlap colors and have the pattern you are going for. I used a pencil to make a note of which color would go in each square.
Step 2: Finishing the Painting
To finish this, I painted the board. (I erased the pencil lines as I was filling in each square) Then, I put my clone troopers together and attached them to the art board. I used a tape runner by adtech to attach the images to the board.
You could use this technique to make any image you like into an Andy Warhol style painting.
