Hi, I’m Stephan, I’m here at State of Confusion Skate Park, and I’m gonna show you how to do aerosol art. Now that we’ve done the sketch on the wall, we’re gonna go to the fill. Now for the fill, I’ve chosen blues and purples which are complimentary to the back color which is an orange yellow. And to apply the fill you’re gonna put on a slightly fatter cap, some people will use thinner caps, some people will use feather caps, it’s all preference, so figure out which one you like. And I’m gonna base my fill roughly off my sketch, so. And the most important part of the fill is wearing your mask because this is when it gets really fumey and you wanna make sure you have a mask on. And when you’re doing the fill, of course, just like a coloring book, you want to stay on the inside of the lines the best you can. But it’s not important to be too clean because you still haven’t put on your final outline yet. Now what I’m gonna do is I wanna put what’s called the force field around it, now I’m slightly into the fill. What I’m gonna do with this force field is the color that you put around the graffiti to make the graffiti pop a little bit more off the wall, and just like the back color. You wanna make sure this color is complimentary, the contrasting to the color of the fill. I chose a pink to make the blue pop out a little bit. And basically just carefully go around the end or you can do your own little design on the outside. Bubbles coming off, lines coming off, fades coming out. If you ever get a small drip down from your outline on to your piece, you come through with the color and spray real quick over it, just do a little clean ups. Now that we’re done the main fill, I’m gonna show you how to do the small detail work inside the fill.
