Open Webinar – Painting on Tricky Surfaces

January 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Looking to paint on a weird surface and need to make your paint stick? Join host Jillie Eves as she explores several products commonly used in the theatrical scenic painting world… and some not so common.

Let’s see which products best coat, protect, glue, and transform a variety of surfaces including fake grass, vinyl flooring, metal, foam, acrylic panels, carpet, and many other substrates. Get ready for lots of process media and product information – we are going to throw around some water based clear coatings and literally see what sticks!

If you have specific questions that you’d like us to address during the webinar, please email bdennett@scenicguild.org by Sat, Jan 29th at Noon CST.
