    In my experience doing art prep for a small museum, we use vinyl lettering for exhibitions. Sometimes large paragraphs and blocks of text will span areas of 5 meters or more. If the show is up for 3 months the vinyl will peel off easily with a plastic paint scraper. After 6 or more months, especially if direct or indirect sunlight is involved, the vinyl will cling willfully and much elbow greasage is needed for removal. I’ve always been a fan of rasterbator for a quick graphic wall treatment.

    I just wonder if the longer you leave this up, the more difficult it will be to get off. If it’s like other things I’ve tried, you won’t be able to get it off after 3 months without taking some paint off with it.

    Neat.
    Hope the wall turns out good for you afterwords.
    The design reminds me of The Darkness.)

    It’s nice if you’re the kind of person who wants art that terrifies you when you wake up from a nap.

    I put plants up. Not quite as DIY as mentioned above: these are from Ikea!

    The example looks like a visual from a 5-MeO-AMT trip.
