To nerdify my home a little bit more, I decided to frame three expressions of the iconic Doomguy.
Stuff I used for this project:
- Foam rubber sheets
- Spray glue
- Picture frame
- Red plasti dip
- Yellow spray paint
- Stone structure spray

Step 1: Don't Hurt Me Plenty
At first I printed the three faces of Doomguy on inkjet paper and glued it onto a sheet of white foam rubber. After this had dried, I carefully cut along the edges of the print. To get a 3D-like effect I glued the three faces on black foam rubber as a base.
Step 2: Spray and Pray
To mimic the color scheme of the Doom cover art, I decided to spray the frame in yellow and red. Since I already had yellow spray paint and red plasti dip I hoped that those two different spray colors would work together.
I startet with the yellow part and after this was dry, I added the layer of red. It was a little bit too much of plasti dip and the frame was not leveled, so I accidentally “created” some tears. But this fits to the bloody nostalgia this game is.
In the game, the face is set in a gray section at the bottom of the screen, so I wanted to alternate the surface of the passepartout, too. For this I used some structure spray - a little bit expensive for a can of spray paint, but the outcome was worth it.
Step 3: Ultra-Violence
After everything was dry, I just putted the frame back together and it was done. Very easy little project with a nice individualized frame in the end.
I hope you like the idea and thank you very much for reading. If you are interested, I did some other frames in the last few weeks.
