We're finished with the wallpaper!!!!  I'm so tired I can hardly see straight.


the crappy screen that we had made

   
working up samples -- blow-drying was mesmerizing, due to the patterns created

   
the final color -- we alternated spaces, so that the frame of the screen wouldn't drag through wet ink
our paper was fourteen feet long

And here's the other pattern.  I wish I thought the original image that the scenic designer gave us was attractive, but I don't.


Robb is holding the screen for me.  The screen is resting in an angle-correcting jig.  Since each screen was wrong in a different way, we had to make a correction jig for each screen.


Here is a large chunk of our paper, with the designers' image laying on top of it.  I think we did a good job of matching it.

I couldn't resist but laugh out loud when i read this- Insane set designers, crakiness, 24 hour deadlines and shitty companies that rip you off. yes- it reminds me of the film biz--ahh memories. good times huh?  Grin you did a great job and I have to say KUDOS to you. Awesome replica- and LOVE the first retro pattern. Keep on truckin' in the weird world of entertainment. Its crazy- and insane- and FUN!!! Smiley

Lexis -- is "crakiness" the state of Being on Crack, or of Being Cranky, and on Crack? 

Just need to be sure, so I can tell the difference...

HA ha ha!!!  Cheesy
Yea- that was misspelled- BUT almost appropriate. It could mean both. in that industry? Nothing surprises me. I meant Cranky. but cracky sounds good to me too. lol! you never know sometimes....
