I realize that many of you know about the basic materials of spray paint art, but I get so many questions!
The most popular ones are about paper and the painting spatula we use…so watch this video and below I´ll explain a little bit about the materials.

So the paper we paint on is a glossy thick posterboard. You can get posterboard at many office supply stores in the US, like Staples. You can also usually find it at Walmart. A digital printer will usually have some too..but you have to describe it to them and sometimes cut it yourself.
The little knife we use is called a spatula in Mexico but in the US they call it a palette knife. You can get these at any reasonably stocked art store. Try different sizes for different effects. The most common size used in spray paint art is around 1 inch long with a slight curve at the top. Others will also work.
Just FYI, you can do spray paint art all winter! There are 2 ways. One is with water based spray paint like Montana waterbased 300. The other is to do it with an airbrush. Learn more at www.airbrushpaintingsecrets.com
