Power wash art

A regular man decided to try this creative technique which he called power wash art. He documented all process and named his pieces of art.

The Joker


Start to finish approx 2 hours, including chalking it out.

Upside Down pic flipped over


A full front pic ended up with The Joker looking super fat (since I just guestimated his chin without chalking it out). But upside down and flipped looks awesome

Upside Down Joker


Still looks baddass left upside down.

The next 4 are actually the last 4 that I did, but wanted to leave the best for last. Here is the process.

Pikachu - Chalk out


First you chalk out the image.

Pikachu - Line out


Then you very quickly line out the image. Making sure to make the white areas thinner than normal, and the dark areas fatter than normal. (it is a reduction process, since you can't add any more aged dirt to fix mistakes)

Pikachu- Final


Here's picture finished. I accidentally pierced his right ear when I was doing the clean up, my biggest mistake (fortunately) out of the album.

Start to finish approx 40 min, including chalk out.

Bender - Chalk out


I wanted to attempt an image with more dark then light, so went with everyone's favorite robot.

Bender - line out


This was pretty difficult to get the thicknesses of the eye lenses along with the mouth without taking too much away.

Start to finish approx 30 min, including chalk out.

Tree Spirits + Shy Guy - Chalk out


Being a light and dark process figured a Miyazaki tree spirit would be perfect. Then with Mario Kart 8, made a connection between likeness between the characters, so thought I would give it a whirl.

"Are we brothers?"


figured some punctuation could add some emotion, a last second add

"Brothers?" - Line out


what? This turns into something??
2dpbla9 - power wash art


"Brothers?" - Final


This is by far the hardest power wash out of this whole album. It was smaller than the rest and had the smallest room for error.

Start to finish approx 1 hr 30 minutes, including chalking out

Majora's Mask - Chalk out


Now we get to the gusto of the album.
Majora's Mask chalk out. Documented this process a little more.

Majora's Mask - Line out


Ever so quickly you line it out. Its interesting working with a medium that erases what you need to complete as you are completing it.

Majora's Mask - Clean up


Then after the line out, you clean it up!
If you attempt this, make sure you keep the nozzle at least 6"-8" away from the ground. I definitely accidentally etched most of Majora's Mask into our backyard concrete slab. I'm not mad, but as long as the parents don't notice, I won't notice.

Majora's Mask - Final


Majora's Mask in it's glory.

These last two are my favorites.

Start to finish approx 5 hours (including chalking out).

Went to take a pic but my cat, Steven Lucifer, ended up wanting in on it.

Majora's Mask - Size comparison


Obligatory cat pic for Karma. He hated every second of this picture.

Majora's Mask - Size comparison (Actually)


Again, I'm 5'10", so you can see how gigantic this is. Which made it loads easier than all the rest. (Joker and Stormtrooper were the easiest, with this taking a close third)

Frank the Bunny


Had to do a throw back to my favorite movie to date. A bee caused me to put a line through his left eyebrow. But still turned out awesome.

Start to finish approx 3 hours, including chalking out.

The Power Washer that did it all


Couldn't have done it without my parents new power washer! Unfortunately all of these images are now removed after they were documented.

I hope you enjoyed my day of all play and no work!
