Bus Scroll Art - Rock Style!

Finally I have completed painting my Rock Style Bus Scroll Art in my husband's man cave that I alluded to in my last post!  I've been up late the last few nights to get it finished and I'm chuffed with the final result. 

I was inspired from my post "LCD All Things British" earlier in the year where I came across a music inspired Bus Scroll Art piece from Pixel Squared.

So firstly I made a list of our favourite bands including my husbands' band name.

I then chose a font I liked (Trebuchet) and got the spacing and size of all of the names looking right in a word document to come up with the final draft.....

I then scaled up all of the letters in each word to fit into the space on the wall (lots of maths - love excel!) and printed them all and cut them out. (very time consuming!)

I traced around all of the letters in the band names onto the wall with a marker pen and then set about painting.

I chose a gloss acrylic paint (black and white) to paint the backdrop and lettering. The paint dried quickly and it was easy to clean up any boo boos! I needed a number of sized brushes to suit the different size lettering.

The rendered wall was a little rough in places making it tricky to keep the lettering straight!

I've really enjoyed this labour of love so Happy Belated Father's Day Hubby!
