Stuff keeps going on and there is always more to try – don’t stop!
Here’s a simple method to make your stencil pieces pop – there are no numbers here but it’s almost as easy.
You spray your stencil to gain orientation on where to put the colous.
Then you go nuts with any paint you like! Use various colours for different areas and highlight important parts. You can also let the background shine through.
Finally you spray your stencil again on top of all that.
Make sure that stuff in the background doesn’t mess up crucial parts of your stencil (like the eyes etc.). If you’re not satisfied, have another go with paint and the stencil on top of that.
Basically this is meant to create different levels in your piece, to give it some depth. If you worry about wasting paint, don’t! Art is not about saving but about going all in until you’re satisfied!
Almost done! Might need new filters for the mask soon…
More from the cellar! It seems like a good idea to work three or four pieces at the same time, so while the paint on one piece is drying there is no sitting around and waiting. This also means that you’ve got to be more focused and remember what to do next and how to do it. I messed up one piece and had to start it again – that’s all part of it, let’s keep going!
Back into the basement ’cause there’s always stuff to do and the weather don’t care! So mask on and cans out – there’s more to come!
Surfing in a barbed wire barrel – you don’t want to wipe out here so you hang on…
This stencil is six years old now but keeps coming back in various styles. The police have seen half of it and some people got one at home.
This version here was made for A. and B. – I’ll soon check if you placed it correctly:)
Keep riding your wave!!!
For some time now I am making videos – ambush on youtube / ambush on vimeo.
With every new project I find myself searching for the right track to support the mood and style. When using music that other people created I feel it is important to give credit. On top of that I want to know if the artists are OK with they way I used their music. I am happy to say that almost all of them responded very positively!
To all the great musicians, bands and DJs whose tracks I was allowed to use – thank you very much!!!
