New Paper Sky All DONE!

Christine! and I pushed on and completed papering the entire 12' new sky backdrop. We painted dozens of large pieces of brown paper with shades of blue from the black-blue of Night to the pale-cerulean of Dawn. 

We cut the dried pieces of blue into irregular shapes and slathered their backs with ample matte medium. This was used like wallpaper paste, and pressed into the collage of graduated shades while wet and brushed down flat against the wall behind.
Here are some test shots of what the finished sky backdrop looks like behind the plastic scrim layer. Dreamy and hand-painted looking. No harsh corners.
