  • Delegating the painting process was one of the biggest challenges of this project. Efficiency was very important, so I decided a “paint-by-numbers” process was best. These charts were distributed to small groups, and each group tackled a specific color. 
  • Fuax gloss was mixed with the paint to prevent chipping. This 100’ x 50’ tarp is folded and unfolded for every performance or practice. 
  • Happy Helpers. We had a team of about 20 marching members helping to get this project taped and painted in one night. The time constraint was intense—gym time in a high school is not easy come by. The faster we painted, the more dry time we had. 
  • Function: The musicians use the floor as an integrated backdrop to their performance.
