Step 1: Left 4 Dead 2 Paper Mache Logo
First step i printed the logo i was going to do off the internet. then i made the hand. i used rolled and balled newspaper and green painters tape to form it.
Step 2: Left 4 Dead 2 Paper Mache Logo
then i cut the big piece of cardboard for the back ground and cut out the letter which i had to scale form the piece of paper converting it from cm to inches
Step 3: Left 4 Dead 2 Paper Mache Logo
than i did my paper Mache. i ripped the newspaper into strips and made my flour water mixture which i used for the glue the ratio is one part flour two parts water. then dip the strips of newspaper and start macheing. i did the background and the hand first then the lettering after it dried a bit.
Step 4: Left 4 Dead 2 Paper Mache Logo
then the painting. i painted the whole background red first and then added the yellow to lighten the green for the next step. i left the lettering red because around the 4 there will be red left over and under the hand to make it look more bloody.
Step 5: Left 4 Dead 2 Paper Mache Logo
then i did the green over everything you see and painted the lettering white.
Step 6: Left 4 Dead 2 Paper Mache Logo
final touches i added black around to add ageing and to darken in up a bit. added some yellow to hand to lighten it up a bit. little dabs of white for the lettering and some blacks dabs too.
