The Dark Knight.. Painting

Yup that's right.. I painted Batman for my little guys room.. So here he is!
Pin It

Doesn't he look angry!?! 
Want to paint one too?  Well, here's how I made mine.

Blank canvas
Acrylic paint
3 Magazine pages
Mod Podge
Scrapbook paper
I started by Mod Podging my canvas with magazine... I do this ALOT cause I like the aged vintage-y look it gives the painting.  Once dry I painted the background with two different grays and added the shape of my batman.  (To make the Batman I made a template of him out of a cereal box)
Next I painted Batman black.
Then I used my Cricut to cut out a yellow oval.
Then I created my Batman logo freehand.
Next I added in all of his facial details and Mod Podged all of my scrapbooked shapes onto the painting.
Last I added all of the little details you see above, shading to the nose and around the top where the cape would be.. and a mouth.. which I really debated on.. but now I just adore!
Villians beware.. for the Caped Crusader has landed in our bedroom!
I am sharing with the awesome blogs!
