Redditor garywashburn custom-designs his own:

Here’s how he does it:

I basically get an idea in my noggin, find images I want to use. Turn them into stencils. Hand cut the stencils. Select the colors of paint I want and knock it out. The more I do these, the more techniques I pick up. I have tried all different types of acetates for the stencils, and x-actos for cutting. I have also found that using a repositionable spray adhesive on the back of the stencils makes the acetate stick well to the board which also reduces what I call “blow outs” – I hate when the paint doesn’t create a solid fine line. Aside from that, I’m still developing techniques on how to paint such as laying down the right amount of spray paint (just enough to cover, no more no less) and misting two or three or four colors together to get a certain look or fade, and also learning how to splatter paint. The majority of the colors you see on the boards are rarely just one solid color. Some of the layers in the faces are generally a solid color, but some of them along with the backgrounds and lettering etc are multiple colors misted together. It’s easy to see up close.

If you’ve got money to burn and no outlet for your Breaking Bad addiction, he’s selling to interested Redditors. PM him, but don’t blame us if it turns out to be a complex cover-up for a multimillion-dollar meth operation.
