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.
Paint a Glow-in-the-Dark Masterpiece
Paint the sky, water, and rough shape of the bridge. Keep your strokes bold and abstract.
Add scream character, starting with basic black and white.
Build the bridge railing. Start with darkest colors and working towards the lightest.
Use yellow to add highlights to the sky, water and bridge.
Add final touches to the water, the Scream character and the bridge railing.
Because florescent paint is not light-fast, varnish with an ultra violet light stabilizer if desired.
