Grad Images Super Graphics

Post by Bob Sauls » Sat Jun 08, 2013 7:52 am

Here are some shots of a job I have been working on over the last few weeks.
All of the concepts were created by a local Ad firm. We took their photoshopped comps and did what it takes.

All but the Inspirational quotations in the last photo are hand painted from pounce patterns, the Graduate silouettes were projected from transpearancies.
Coatings were Sherwin Williams Superpaints. The qoutation was plotter cut matte vinyl.

Yes it is a latex paint. I chose the satin finish.
I would like a recommendation on a flat oil based paint for this type of work. Years ago Ben Moore
Had a product called Saniflat but I am not sure if it is still available.

First oil based flat that comes to mind is a Japan paint but the pallet is limited. You could use one shot and add a flatten paste or power which is what I do. Fumed Silica is the powder I use.

Thanks for the advice. Where would one find such additives?
