Art Punks is the 9th grade art club the teacher separate building started. I was in Art Punks last year and am a returning mentor this year. Our first project Ms. Gannon started us on was painting a hard leather suitcase to keep our art supplies and work in. I just got this beauty yesterday at the D.A.V. and I'm going to show you what I did!
Here are my supplies. I have a brown cardboard squiggly thing, fake flowers, and my spray paint.
I started off with a base coat of white spray paint.
I added a light blue and light silver coat over the white and placed down my brown squiggle. This is the side "A".
I went over my squiggle with black paint on the top and bottom of the side "A".
On side "B" I did the same kind of base coating with the white, blue, and silver. I held the fake flowers against it to create a light silhouette.
I used one of the fake flowers as a stencil and went over it in black and some in silver.
Here's the halfway finished side "B"
I painted my "company" name. This year I'll be taking pictures, selling reconned picture frames, and selling prints. The complete side "a".
The complete side "B"
A close-up of the tree. To get the blue waves in it, I used the opposite end of my paint brush and scraped away the paint to reveal the blue base coat.
also, while waiting for the paint on the suitcase to dry, I used the spare paint on my jeans. hooray!
