Step 1: 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
With a coat of white over the black. And then another coat of clearcoat.
Step 5: Paint Background Yellow
With final coat of weldbond to give plastic texture.
