Painting the Wardrobe
Our blank canvas ..... so exciting!
The wheels have been spraypainted gold.
We divided the surface into diferent sections, echoing our research into the decoration of old fashioned fairground rides and folk cabinets and boxes. Using basic stencil shapes we cut out to map the areas for painting.
We chose to paint the background in blocks of colour, which we will be building over with layers of illustrations and patterns. Our colour palette was again influenced by our research into fairgrounds and victorian side shows.
