spray paint art

I've been trying my hand at spray paint art off and on.
Todays project is realy the pots. It didn't come out as well as I'd hoped it would because the temp outside dropped and the paint didn't set right.

I was having fun with this tho... I used bike gears for the planets.



I'm trying to paint a bike frame like this too... I'm taking more time with it and hoping it will come out good.

Anybody else try spray paint art?

Art is cool but your bathroom is an electrical hazard.

Thanks. I am a bit upset with the results tho. The sudden temp drop caused bleeding problems (mainly the stars spread and bled out) it looks ok tho its the worst since my first two attempts.

Lmao... Btw there's only one thing plunged in in my bathroom and that's a highlight. I did have a lamp plunged in for the pic bit it was out once the pic was done.

It's not easy trying to do it on a bike frame.

And I just realized I posted the toilet seat pic of it without the details highlighted
Here's with detail


Ps: lol I like my Walmart burner

Interesting but ill stick to my outerspace paintings for now and maybe try some nature later on when I get better with some of the details needed to do them.
I'm planning a piece on a mirror as well but I know that won't be easy... I'm thinking making it a cave with the opening at the end being useable mirror.
