Art Life: How To Make A Street Art Family Photo
This weeks episode of Art Life, Garibaldi shows you how to turn a family photo into a street art style masterpiece. Check out the video for the demo, and read below for materials and tips that will bring your art to life.
What to buy:
18” x 18” white canvas – This can really be any size small or large
Printed family photo – I took the photo with my iPhone and uploaded it to the FedEx print app. You can easily pick it up from your local FedEx, or you can print a small version on your home computer.
Exacto knife – You really just need a blade that can safely and easily cut the image out of the paper
Mod Podge – This is a glue that dries clear. You’ll use it to adhere the image to a surface and to seal once you are done
Liquitex Spray Paint – Liquitex is a great quality spray paint and comes in many colors with different tiip options. It is also low in order, and no fumes like other paints. You may smell a little but nothing like other outdoor use spray paints.
Zig Posterman Paint Pens – These will work well on the surface and fun to use while adding your own color to the painting.
Stencils – This is just a fun option to add textures, lines, and shapes
