SPONSOR FESTIVAL POSTERS

71 sheets sponsored / 0 remaining

The With Courage Exhibition continues as part of the Northern Eye Photography Festival in Colwyn Bay, North Wales, during October 2021


As well as speaking at the Northern Eye Photography Festival on 10th October, I pasted seven posters for the fringe festival as part of my ongoing With Courage Exhibition — taking my photographs back to the areas where I created them to make open air pandemic-friendly exhibitions for the community.

An alteration to the original plan [for logistical reasons] resulted in a revised [and increased] selection of crew portraits being made from the RNLI stations closest to Colwyn Bay:

  • Rhyl — giant 23ft x 12ft poster [24 sheets]
  • Llandudno — giant 26ft x 12ft poster [27 sheets]
  • Conwy — 6ft x 5ft poster [4 sheets]
  • Beaumaris — 6ft x 5ft poster [4 sheets]
  • Moelfre — 6ft x 5ft poster [4 sheets]
  • Holyhead — 6ft x 5ft poster [4 sheets]
  • Trearddur Bay — 6ft x 5ft poster [4 sheets]

I asked people to get behind it by sponsoring the sheets. Each time a sheet was sponsored, I ‘activated‘ the greyed-out sheets in sequence above.

All 71 sheets in this exhibition have now been sponsored. Thank you very much to all those who got behind it so generously.

WHEAT PASTE RECIPE

A recipe for making your own wheat paste and how to paste your poster to a wall


OVERVIEW

Wheat paste is an easy-to-make organic glue.

The quantities described below will be more than enough to paste your 60x50cm poster to a wall.

For this recipe, you’ll simply need water, plain flour and sugar — the water and flour will be mixed in a 5:1 ratio.

I suggest using a small cup or yoghurt pot as your unit of measurement. The precise size doesn’t matter — just as long as you keep using the same measure!

The final paste will have a 5:1 ratio of water to flour, with a little bit of sugar added towards the end to make a stickier mixture.

You can buy pasting and hanging brushes very cheaply from hardware stores like B&Q, Wickes and Wilkinsons.


HOW TO MAKE WHEAT PASTE


1) Add four measures of water to a saucepan and bring it to the boil;

2) While you’re waiting for the water to boil, add one measure of plain flour to a separate bowl or jug;

3) Add one measure of water to the flour;

4) Whisk the flour and water until it makes a thin, very smooth paste;

5) When the pan comes to the boil, turn the heat off and slowly add the flour paste through a sieve (to remove any lumps), stirring as you go;

6) Stir the paste for a good 3 minutes;

7) Stir 1 tablespoon of sugar into the hot mix (to make it stickier);

8) Add a few drops tea tree oil to the hot mix (to prevent mould);

9) Pour the mixture into a suitable container (plastic boxes with a clip-lock lid work well);

10) Put a layer of cling film over the surface of the paste to prevent a skin forming;

11) Allow to cool;

12) You’ve just made some wheat paste!


PASTING YOUR POSTER


1) Use a pasting brush or soft paint brush to liberally and swiftly paint your wheat paste directly onto the wall/surface where you’d like to stick your poster;

2) Make sure the area you’re pasting is a little larger than the size of the poster (the poster measures 60x50cm);

3) Place the poster on the wall in the area you’ve pasted and gently press the paper onto the surface with your fingers;

4) Liberally brush paste onto the surface of the poster, start in the centre and brush out towards the corners, then the edges;

5) Be careful to use as few strokes as possible, otherwise you may risk damaging the poster;

6) Once the poster’s stuck in place and the entire surface is covered with paste, you may like to use a hanging brush to gently wipe over the surface to remove any bubbles that may have formed;

7) Allow the paste to dry (this may take a few hours) and enjoy!


EXTRA TIPS


1) Practice using something else first! A sheet of newspaper is perfect and you can carefully peel it off before it dries;

2) Flatter, smoother surfaces are best. Most brick walls work well but knobbly, stony walls may prove tricky;

3) If you’re pasting to a textured wall (bricks, for example) gently dab the tips of the brush against the surface of the poster to push it tighter against the wall. Keep your dabs to a minimum otherwise you might damage the surface of the poster. The texture will look really good when the poster dries — it’ll look more like the poster has been sprayed to the wall rather than pasted!
