For the posters, I printed them on an inkjet printer, then to seal it to prevent the ink from bleeding I sprayed the sheet with matte varnish while I had it taped to a flat surface. Once they were dry and I cut out the posters I wanted to use and glued them to the buildings using gloss varnish; I then coated the entire poster with gloss varnish, making sure to have a seal around the edge of each poster. Once the gloss was dry, I used brush on matte medium (GW Lahmian Medium) to remove the shine from the posters. This required about two applications of medium and I ended up painting it onto the entire wall so that there wasn’t a noticeable difference between the look on walls and around the posters.
