    yeh, agreed. Sorry, I guess for me it just felt like I was biting her style because that's where I got the inspiration to try it. I'm sure she's not the only one who does this kinda thing.

    @ coff. if you wanna go big, then use the grid method on ur computer, becuase its cheapest, and at that size its only maybe 4sheets of paper...buuttt that fades, so th best is to use a stencil,

    idk if you guys still go to school or anything, but mine is pretty big on art and they allow you to use the printer but only 10copies. after that, you gotta pay for it. they have different types of paper, regular printing paper, newsprint, and a very thin type of paper that'll probably be best to use. they're mainly 8in.x15in. im not to sure about the newsprint but it's probably the size of a regular newspaper page.

    Well if you're just doing regular pastes that are a basic 2 tone then try this... Get some newsprint. Big newsprint. And then draw whatever you're goign to be printing on a sheet of really nice cardboard. And cut it out as a stencil. You're not going to need to need worry about if this stencil holds together where the islands are and shit. You just have to make sure it'll last long and give you nice solid edges. Then you get some good flat black paint and spray that stencil on the newsprint.

    Those cutout posters are really difficult to paste.

    What do you mean? and ive noticed with like OBEY and stuff, when they did 2 piece posters, they just put up one peice, thenpasted the other piece right next to it? DOnt glue the actual edges though.

    liek with mine, when they are more than one piece of paper, i glue them together with liek a glue stick, just to keep it organized before i put it up. then when i put it up like a week later, where the edges connect, liek the poster starts fallign apart, and the edges curl up where the two parts of the poster connect

    I think the glue might somehow have a chain reaction with the paste and somehow loose its effect. If I were you, Id just put it up traditionally and put up your first piece, then when you got a good amount of paste over the poster, kinda put your second piece overlapping it a bit to it still connects.

    If theyre mad small, then just use stickers? I think they have plain white mailing labels and what not. Other then that, i dont know what to tell you. You should post up a picture, cause I cant really picture what your talking about :p

    Well, If thats the case, then just shrink the image so it all fits on one piece of paper, then go to staples or kinkos(assuming you live in the states) and blow it up to the size you want. It will prolly be pretty cheap if its just black and white, so dont worry about cost.

    Sorry to be off topic from the recent posts but does anyone have a real good recipe because I cant get my posters to stay up, like they stay up but I go back to check them the day after im done and they peel off so easy.. And if I have a drawing I like and I want to get a lot of copies do I just take it to staples and get it copied or do I have to have a certain kind of paper or size? Thanks. $)

    recipes

    to kind of continue off of moldy's post pertaining to good recipes, i as well have found the boiled water wheat flower recipe to be lacking. the paste starts to chip away within 2 days of it being applied to a wall. alternative recipes would be greatly appreciated

    I dont even cook my paste, I just mix 1/4 hot water with 3/4 flour. If yours isnt sticking, trying going back to the posts and find all the addatives that people have added to the recipe. Sugar( a handful During the time your mixing) Wood glue, corn starch, and clear coat are some of the things I heard to enhance your paste. Just go back and look through the pages, Your gonna find what your lookin for :p
