How to Make Spray Paint Art




Spray paint art is very easy all you need is a few materials and you can usually find those within your house.  If you don't have some of the materials you get probably get them all for around $10.  The place you'll be working in will need to be well ventilated so you won't breath in all the fumes.  Depending on how big it is it shouldn't take long.

The materials you need are:
paper plates

spray paint

poster board

a magazine

a workspace

Those are all the materials you'll probably use.  You also might want a paint mask and latex gloves.  So let's get started!

    Amazing and you make it look so easy.. :)
    I'm in the middle of decorating my sons new bedroom, but on the exterior wall it is seriously hard work !! the emulsion paint will not take to wall and this problem has unintentionally created a space scene colour effect ! so i might as well make good use of a bad space by adding the moon and stars.
    so ill be sure to try your moon tomorrow and load a picture for you to see how i got on.
    thanks and keep up the good work ye.

    Saw this being done once on the sidewalk in New Orleans and it is an awsome thing to watch being done. Nice job.

    There's also a bloke doing this on the streets of Melbourne, Australia. He sells them, and from what I can tell, makes quite a profit.
