Here is a Caricature that I did as a demonstration to some of the youngsters who are attending the art project at Bellamy.

The image was from a pencil drawn doodle that I did a couple of days earlier. The image that is on the blog is a free hand throw up on the wall using sprays.

Wheat Paste Graff

Hello to everybody X

Firstly can I just say a big thankyou for all your feedback to may other posts. I have tried to go to all your posts individually but due to me being very busy and not having enough time to say thankyou to all of you I have decided to start this post by saying a BIG THANKYOU!!!! :-)

Anyway I must appologise as there is only one image at present due to the weather being very cold and my fingers had gone a funny colour of blue after just producing one image. As I manage to put more images up I will post them on here.
The image (if people struggle to see) is of a young woman (no one in particular, just an image I have used). I have drawn the image up in large format (about 1m x 1m) and then painted her black and white using external wood and metal paint and "several" HB pencils.

I then (and this bit I really enjoyed, and it reminded me of Wednesday afternoons at my late Grans when I was a child). I used simmering water and flour, about 6 cups of water to one cup of plain flour and mixed it to make the glue (wheat Paste) and then literally pasted the image to the brick work at Bellamy.

I will admit that some of the younger children helped as this was part of their project but due to the weather they lasted all of 2 minutes which is fare doos!

ENJOY and have a go (although remember that alot of people wont appreciate having stuff pasted on their wall randomly and you will get fined, community service is not fun!) I say though that all public buildings should come with a wheat paste, lets paste the world ;-)
