My three year old grandson Christian loves superheros. What little boy doesn’t like superheros right ? Christian recently transitioned into a twin bed, and his room is being decorated with a superhero theme. So far his room has superhero bedding , wall decor and action figures. I recently did a project I thought I would share with you. It was super easy, but a little time consuming to complete. But I love how it turned out.
To start this project you will need a copy of your superhero you want to enlarge and trace onto white paper. I found my image by searching on the web for coloring pages of superheros. I also looked up color images in order to get my colors correct. I then printed the images from my printer. My tracer allows me to enlarge from different printed images, I think I used a 3′ x 5″ printed image and ended up transferring onto a blank white sheet of paper that was approximately 56″ x 36″ . So my image was pretty small to start with. . You will need to play around a bit and see how the image lines up on your canvas.
To enlarge my printed superhero I used a tracer. This worked pretty good. I stapled my white sheet of paper on the wall, and moved the tracer back until I was able to get the size I wanted.
This is what it looked liked projected onto the white paper. It worked best in a dark room with just the tracer on.
I then took a black permanent marker and traced all the lines. Now you basically have something that looks
like a big coloring page. Just need some paint to finish.
I used acrylic paints and stated painting. I referred to my printed images I had printed from the computer as a guideline.
