Nursery mural - how to paint even black lines?


I purchased the big Magnum Sharpie and some smaller ones as well.

It is not as easy as I would have liked to believe it to be. The marker seems to produce worse lines the lower it gets. See attached file for example. I have a lot of touching up, filling in and darkening to get a complete line.

I just wanted to mention this for anyone else interested in trying this technique.

For anyone interested, when you mention specific books and titles, and show it on the web, isn't that plagiarism or using copyrighted material punishable by $2500--$25,000?

read about the doctrine of fair use. That will take care of some of your concerns.

http://www.copyright.gov/fls/fl102.html

As to what is happening on this particular thread; is the image an exact copy of some of the artwork? If so, then yes, it could be construed as a copyright infringement but since the poster is not using it for a commercial purpose and not for commercial display, chances are there would be no action sought against them. They may even fall under the doctrine of fair use even if it were exact. It is a grey area and the only place it ever really gets decided is in a court room. I do not think the OP has anything to worry about here.

Now, if they were painting these as a business; most definitely a problem.

As was mentioned before, it's for personal enjoyment in my own home and not for profit in any way. So I am not concerned.

I used Para Ultra acrylic latex semi gloss.

I suspect I am also running into this problem because of the shaddy nylon brushes I used where the different colours meet.

I do not believe you have anything to worry about but the other poster is correct in his thoughts. This is a good forum and I believe he was just trying to remind folks about remaining legal.

be sure to post a pic when you are done.

One thing I was thinking was a perfect line would look, well, perfect. Since the style is obviously intended to be imprecise, precision would be out of place.

I still think a round brush would be the way to go. A bit of practice and you would be Picasso redux.

You might try a pinstriping brush for this. It will take a little practice but painting lines is what the things are made for.

They also make little pinstriping rollers set-ups that will do either single or parallel lines. Try an art supply store or check with an auto finish supply company.
