In fairness though, some people don't care how much their art supplies cost and will use a US $50 or $100 bill for paper to draw on.

 

That made my wallet hurt to watch that. I wonder if a bank would accept a defaced bill like that, I wouldn't take the chance.

If you watch the video through he addresses that and the answer is 100%, "No." It is no longer legal tender once you deface it. He used a $100 bill as the world's most expensive piece of art paper.

Had the sound off :ph34r:, but pass! :whatthe: I don't think I'll be doing that anytime soon but it did look cool. Maybe I should get a brick of Bolivares and practice my artistic skills.hm

You never know.

Something to realize is that that video is monetized and has gotten a lot of views, a lot of ad play, and he's probably made his $200 back many times over from YouTube revenue sharing. So good on him. We'd have a hard time pulling that off. lol 

But yeah. Enjoy buying the art markers he was using. Those things ain't cheap either, yo! I say this as a former high-school art-brat. lol

Hmm, maybe I'll skip the colors and go with origami. It won't cost me anything extra and I can always unfold it later if I need it. lol

I'm thinking the polymer notes will be my best bet for wall paper. Problem is that they usually have a security window in them, I wouldn't be able to hide the ugly blue color without having to paint the walls first. lol

White paint can't be that expensive... of course... with white you could probably just do primer and call it a day. lol
