This particular project was to transform a space and a chair to create a jungle themed birthday party area. Budget and timescale were very limited, so the project had to be completed in one day. I got the client to base coat the walls with a pale green, and to do a base colour of green and brown on the chair to rid it of its icy blue colours, ensuring that I could turn up and just crack on with the detailing. The entire transformation was completed in 8 hours. In an ideal world I would have loved a minimum extra half day to really refine areas, but sometimes it just isn't possible and you really just have to focus on overall impact and speed.
Working for Unlocked Vision Entertainment
I based out my designs by hand, first sketching with white emulsion before painting the UV bases and then detailing with airbrush. The maze was a UV maze, however UV lighting wasn't available to work under, so all the pieces had to be painted in daylight in the hope that all would be well once the UV lights were switched on. (Thankfully, everything worked well!) Everything painted was UV except the final clown faces for the finale.
This was my first time painting tree's on such a large scale so was a great learning experience as I figured out the quickest techniques with the most effective results as I went along. I love the thrill of having to think on the spot and working out how I am going to do things in the moment.This room was completed in one and a half days and was painted all by hand without my airbrush.
