First stencil arrives for the Needles under Flyovers

After much effort trying to get the image right, the first test stencil arrived for one of the needles to go on the pillars supporting the flyovers that cross the Millers Trail in The Arrow Valley Country Park. The images are temporary and will coincide with the exhibition at Forge Mill Museum. The stencils are in three parts to recreate the needle catalogue drawing style.

The paint is chalk based and can be washed off. Three more designs are being developed.

    Fantastic.

    Had you thought of using reverse grafitti or ethical grafitti as it is sometimes coined?
