beberapa hari yang lalu saya membuat beberapa wheatpaste di kantor alego creative studio. padahal cuma iseng sih soalnya males ngecat tembok. jadi yaudah pak wheatpaste aja. biar keren sih hehe, setelah beberapa teman datang berkunjung ke kantor alegostudio, beberapa bertanya itu gimana cara bikinya. kemudian itu apa? jadi kepikiran yaudah lah saya buat aja posting tentang si wheatpaste ini.sumber dari berbagai situs di google ya 😀 maaf kalo beberapa ada yang sama dengan situs yang lain mungkin 😀

 

jadi wheatpaste itu salah satu street art gitu lah. selain grafiti.. mural dll ada juga yang namanya whitepaste. cara bikinya realatif mudah soalnya kamu cuma butuh gambar (donwload  ataupun bikin sendiri juga boleh.. kemudian printer.. (ada juga sih yang di gambar tangan di kertas, aku mah gabisa gambar maaf hahaha)

 

untuk perekatnya.. ada yang menggunakan tepung ragi (aci) ada juga yang pake lem lukol… (sori nyebut merek :D) kemarin sih sempet nyobain  pake aci tapi agak susah juga nempelnya.. tapi lebih abdol pake aci sih soalnya katanya disitu ada sisi perlawananya. ngelawan harga lem yang mahal hahaha. tapi kalo pake lem lukol lebih bagus sih.. beli aja lem lukol. lem lukolnya di campur pake air anget. biar jadi banyak. dan encer hehehe..

 

ini ada salah satu turtorial dari situs lain. saya share disini aja ya 😀

 

1- MASKING TAPE

it don’t have to be a huge one, a thin one can easy handle the job

2- RAZOR OR SCISSOR

3- BUCKET

to put the Flour glue

4- BIG BRUSH

5- POSCA PEN OR WHATEVER YOU WANNA USE FOR PAINTING IT

6- A4 (11,69 X 8,27 INCHES) SHEETS OF OFFSET PAPER

please don’t buy it! Get some old or used ones, save trees 🙂

Step 1

First of all, get the sheets of paper and try to figure out the size of the drawing that you’re going to do, then using the masking tapeunite them, but do it slowly watching to always get together the borders correctly or it going to end up in a mess.

Step 2

Now this part is really important, after getting all sheets together in one canvas you’ll have to see if it fits on the place your going to paste it.

Step3

Now let’s cook the glue! Yes, the Abduzeedo team are teaching designers how to cook too hehe just kidding. The glue that we’re going to use can be made with just too ingredients:

1- 750 ML OF WATER

2- THREE SPOONS OF FLOUR

First boil the water for 10 minutes, then add the three spoons of Flour, mix it and dont let it create flour little balls, so stir it really well. Wait 10 minutes and you should get something like these:

Now let it get cool so you can use it, but don’t store it more than 2 days, it starts to stink. If you wanna store it for more time, put it on a refrigerator. Some people will suggest you to add some white glue to get more sticky, that’s ok, there are plenty of recipes of how to do homemade flour glue, but the one I described is the most simple and it will work well with light things like offset paper.

 

Step 4

Now that you have all setup let’s start drawing, draw in the side without the masking tapes. Feel free to draw wherever you want, but I suggest you to don’t create hairs or complex shapes, since you’re going to cut the drawing after. For my first wheatpaste I tried to create this little happy worm, bellow i posted some pics of the process.

Step 5

Just a little reminder before we can proceed:

 

Warning: We know our readers are quite responsible for their acts, but we just advise you to don’t paste your artwork on other people property (I mean walls, fences, gates, wherever), use it on your own property or you going to have some big troubles (trust me).Thanks for your attention.

 

Now with the artwork finished, go for the spot you choose to paste your artwork, I’d suggest you to choose a less texturized wall, it will be better to paste the artwork.
