DIY it already
i've had this blasted canvas hanging around forever, just taking up space. it's just weirdo drips of paint i did with a chopstick one day. brian meares has no time for my attempts at artwork, so he was happy to see it leave the house yesterday. little did he know - i had bigger plans in store for it.
this is about the simplest DIY ever -- i'll go through it step by step just because the pictures are pretty, but i realize yal aren't fools, so sorry if this seems pedantic.
canvas with something going on already, neon spray paint, scissors, some scrap paper, double sided tape and a marker should do it.
quickly sketch out your letters on paper - it doesn't have to be perfect because you're going to cut around them
that's what cutting looks like, in case you're international
tape each letter down - don't think you'll be clever and skip this step because the spray paint will blow the paper up and you'll ruin the whole thing. you'll never forgive yourself.
hold the spray paint directly above each letter as you spray down, not across
just get about an inch or so out from the edges.
there's the whole shebang painted - then just lift the paper up to reveal your reverse graffiti stylez!
sort of fresh princey, don't you think?
