Paint a Glow-in-the-Dark Masterpiece

Posted by on


When Norwegian artist Edward Munch died, he left thousands of paintings behind. One of them was "The Scream". In 2012, it sold for $120 million - the highest price paid for any work of art at an auction. Replicate this artwork at a fraction of the cost with glow-in-the-dark paints to give the piece a cool new element. So get out the black light, flip off your regular lights and get busy.

Step 1

Paint the sky, water, and rough shape of the bridge. Keep your strokes bold and abstract.

Step 2

Add scream character, starting with basic black and white.

Step 3

Build the bridge railing. Start with darkest colors and working towards the lightest.

Step 4

Use yellow to add highlights to the sky, water and bridge.

Step 5

Add final touches to the water, the Scream character and the bridge railing.

Step 6

Because florescent paint is not light-fast, varnish with an ultra violet light stabilizer if desired.

Step 7
