A bit of vinyl help for a mural

Post by Joe Wigzell » Mon Apr 23, 2012 4:19 pm

Thought I'd share with you a wall in a kickboxing gym that I painted for a friend.

He wanted an image for inspiration whilst working out, with a zen-like theme and a few things that he wanted incorporated including a Buddha, kick boxer and tree.
I spray painted the majority of the image but utilised some vinyl cuts for the trickier parts - a symbol of life (above the tree) and a silhouette of a kick boxer.

I used the SP300i to print and cut the symbol, and cut the kick boxer. I used Adobe Illustrator to create an outlines using the 'Live Trace' tool which I then converted to a cut line using the allocated spot colour.

My friend was very pleased with the result! The vinyl saved time and worked great against the painted background.

Hope you like it!
