  1. Scenic PaintingTechnical Theater I

  2. Scenic Painting Basics – 20 Point Review Quiz • What are two ways you get ready to paint? • How far should you dip a paint brush in paint? • What is a ferrule? • What is a holiday? • What type of brush stroke do you use when priming or base coating? • Latex paint is oil-based. True or False? • What is a paint key used for? • It is okay to use rulers to stir paint. True or False? • What tool do you use to close a can with? • When is a paint brush clean?

  3. Rules for Painting • Wear gloves and face mask (if needed) • Put down drop cloth • Damp rag handy for spills • Close all paint containers tightly (cans w/mallet) • Wash all materials until they are completely clean!

  4. Tips for Painting • Inspect brushes for clumped surfaces; inspect sponges, rags, and rollers for irregularities. • Dip your brush no more than ¾” into the paint. • Do not let the paint get into the ferrule (metal binder). • Use a cross-hatch (criss-cross) painting stroke to avoid gaps called “holidays.” • Apply paint evenly! • Always work on the wet edge of the paint. • If work is interrupted, feather the edge and then work back towards it when you restart.

  5. Tools and Materials: Brushes • Detail brushes (for details) • Flat-ferrule (for base-coating, lay-in and priming) • Rollers (for base-coating, lay-in and priming) • Sash (for lining and detailing) • Scenic Fitch (lay-in) • Scenic Liner (lining and detailing)

  6. Tools and Materials: Tools • Brush Extender • Bucket • Can Openers • Drop Cloths • Fans • Gloves • Hair Dryer • Paint Key • Paint Rags (clean-up) • Paint Trays • Rulers • Snap Liner • Stir Sticks

  7. Tools and Materials: Accessories • Feather Duster • Feathers • Markers • Newspaper • Rags • Rocker Grainer • Spider Web • Sponge

  8. Types of Paint • Water-Based: Latex, Casein, Supersaturated • Oil-Based: Stains, shellac, spray paint • Binders and Finishes: Acrylic

  9. Steps in the Process • Surface Preparation • Priming • Base Coating • Layout • Lay-in • Detailing • Finishing • Touch-Up

  10. PRIMING / STRAIGHT PAINTING 3. BRUSH STROKE Always use a cross-hatch pattern. Avoid holidays. Apply paint evenly. 4. CLEAN UP Clean all brushes, materials Check floor / work surface for drips, spills, splatters, or tracks! 1. PREPARATION / MATERIALS Drop Cloth Paint Tape Paint – Open and Close Brush/Roller Damp Rag 2. PAINT LOADING: Brush – Dip ¾” max in paint; no paint in ferrule! Roller – Evenly load roller; do not get paint into end of roller holder. Wipe off excess

  11. I. Basic Scene Painting Technique – Base Coating • Flat covering • Wet blending • Scumbling

  12. II. Basic Scene Painting Technique - Over-painting Technique • Washing and glazing • Blocking • Combing • Dry brushing • Lining • Sponging • Rag rolling and flogging • Spattering • Stippling • Spraying • Stenciling • Stamping

  13. WOOD TEXTURES

  14. WOOD TEXTURES

  15. Faux Finish Technique - Wood • Understanding Wood • Wood Graining techniques • Combing • Rocker graining • Brushing • Detailing

  16. Project #1 – Wood Floor STEPS IN THE PROCESS • Layout – Use a ruler and pencil to mark out planks; space planks same width as brush size. • Lay-in – • Apply darker paint; let dry • Apply lighter paint • Detailing • Use combing technique or rocker grainer • Use marker to draw in plank lines • Add knots, nailheads or scars using dark paint or marker.

  17. Faux Finish Technique – Brick or Block • Understanding Bricks • Brick Wall Technique • Brushing • Stenciling • Sponging • Wood blocking

  18. BRICK TEXTURES

  19. BRICK TEXTURES

  20. BRICK TEXTURES

  21. Project #2 – Brick Wall STEPS IN THE PROCESS • Layout – Use a ruler and pencil to mark out bricks; • Height should be same width as brush size • Width should be approximately 2x width • Lay-in – • Sponge or brush dark color for base • Sponge or brush light color for texture • Detailing – Creating 3D Effect • Determine direction of light • Add grout in gray or other dark color • Add highlight on side of light • Add shadow away from light

  22. Faux Finish Technique – MARBLE Base Techniques • Wet Blending • Rag Rolling / Scumble • Spider Web Technique Detail Techniques • Feather Cracking • Spatter/Splatter

  23. BASE: WET BLENDING Use two wet brushes at the same time.

  24. BASE: Rag Rolling / Scumble Use rags or newspaper.

  25. BASE: Spider Web Apply Base Coat Attach Spider Webs Spray Paint Over

  26. DETAIL: Feather Cracked Rotate thin edge of detail brush.

  27. DETAIL: Spatter/Splatter SPATTER: Fling undiluted paint. SPLATTER: Fling diluted paint

  28. Project #3 – Marble (Wet Blend or Rag Roll/Scumble) STEPS IN THE PROCESS • Layout – Decide what type of marble technique you will use and what type of brush strokes/tools you need – Wet • Lay-in – • Sponge or brush darkest colors first • Sponge or brush lighter colors on top • Detailing – Creating Depth • Spatter/Splatter over Surface • Add Feather Cracking

  29. SCAVENGER HUNT Use your Camera Phone or Camera Get Clear, Usable Images of three different textures. Get a Variety of Textures (Brick, Wood, Stone, Marble, Natural, Glass, Metal, etc.) Remain in the classroom, shop, theater, lobby, surrounding hall. You may go outside the building between the theater lobby and the loading dock around to the side door. DO NOT disturb other classes by making noise or peering into windows. You will have 15 minutes. If you are late returning, you will be written up for skipping.

  30. Texture Critique Critique your own texture and choose two of your classmates’ works to comment on. Then turn in the Handout. Test Grade: • Finished Texture – 50 points • Texture Reference Attached to Work – 20 points • Completed Handout – 20 Points • Critique – 10 points On the Back of your Handout • How well do you think you replicated the texture photograph? • What is one thing you had to learn or do differently once you started the process? • What is one thing you feel you could have done to improve the work? • Which two of your classmates did the best work? Why did you choose their work?
