Water-Activated Illustrations by Peregrine Church

Seattle, a city that's known for its rainy weather, is the perfect place where you can find this water-activated interactive artworks, illustrations, and hidden messages that only appear when wet.

Seattle-based artist Peregrine Church (who is often helped by co-conspirators Xack Fischer and Forest Tressider) created these 'Rainworks' series using stencils and non-toxic, environmentally safe and biodegradable water-repellant coating that lasts anywhere from 4 months to year.

"Rainworks are positive messages and art that appear when it rains. Their purpose: To make people smile on rainy days"

"Each rainwork lasts about 4 months to a year, depending on the amount of foot traffic it has to endure. More abrasion means it will fade faster. A rainwork is the most vivid during its first couple of weeks, then slowly becomes more subtle."

"I use Always Dry Wood & Stone. It is not sold in the US, but it is available at http://nanexcompany.eu/ The company that makes it, the Nanex Company, is based out of Belgium. I am currently in talks with them about getting distribution of Always Dry in the United States."
