amazing.

maybe a silly question: what material are the framed stencils made of?  i can't tell from the pics.

what i love about theatre/costume design too is the resourcefulness.  the budgets are usually so tight, you end up doing the neatest things to make do.  hats out of (clean) bleach bottles?  hell yeah!

Sulicat -- I used the EZ Cut Stencil Plastic from PJ's Decorative Stencils.  We cut the plastic stencils, and then made custom frames for them, stapled the plastic on the frames, and then taped the edges so no paint would leak out the sides.

You "cut" this stuff with a stencil burner.  You must have good ventillation when doing this because burning plastic produces things you don't want to be breathing.  We wore respirators, opened the doors and windows, and had a fan blowing over the stencil and away from us.  That said, the process of burning a stencil is such a delight.  PJ's plastic really does cut like butter.  These stencils were huge and complex, and cutting could have been a dreary chore, but was actually a lot of fun!

PJ is real sweetie, and what an amazing artist she is!  Check out her library project:

KatDr5 -- the production was an opera called The Mines of Sulphur, at the Glimmerglass Opera.  The opera is a modern gothic tale.  Murder, sex, mystery, and the bubonic plague all feature in this wonderfuly creepy story


If anyone wants to see a few more pictures of this one, I posted some of them on a muralists' discussion forum:

WOW!   Shocked  If I didn't have a husband, dog, and job on the other side of the country, along with no real artistic ability (which is why I knit... I'm stubborn, but not terribly innovative), I'd be sending in an application in no time flat.  What a great opportunity!

That is so freaking crazy! I've had to paint an entire mural almost all by myself once, but it was only about 1/5 of the size of your project.

Way impressive!
