4 Hours
Easy
This project only took 4 hours from start to finish. when tracing an image onto transparencies you can use various color sharpies to create a colorful wall mural. The possibilities are endless. Let your imagination soar!


After tracing a printed Rt 66 sign, I traced it onto a translarency paper using a fine point sharpie. I lined up the projector to face the closet doors.



I traced the lines using a pencil directly onto the doors.



I began painting in the lines.



almost complete, just need some shading...



I love the rustic look of the shading n imperfect lines. I cannot wait for the day we take our rt 66 road trip n hope to see many rusted signs n sights along the way.
Suggested materials:
  • Projector   (School auction $5)
