The Elicit Brewing Company ghost murals feature recreated advertisements and logos from old Connecticut breweries. ARTfx artists used an overhead projector to first project the art onto the brick walls using translucent images on clear film before tracing them onto the wall with markers and chalk. Acrylic latex paint and artists’ acrylic paints were dry-brushed or glazed onto the brick. Many areas were then sanded down with 180 grit to create a distressed finish.
