Hi everyone. This is a quick follow up to the last post, Repairing the Damage as well as a prelude to the final post tomorrow (Hallowe’en night). As long as this Frankenstorm and Sandy doesn’t knock out my power I will show you the final assembly. Be careful and be prepared if you can for these storms. Stay safe.
My idea ( for what it’s worth ) was to underpaint the structure with a greenish/aqua tint because the whole thing is based on a 1960’s horror thriller. The final black, gray ,white ( monochromatic ) finish would be given a slight touch of magenta. Magenta being that reddish hue we see on old TV sets . Also the aqua green undertone would help neutralize the reddish hint while hiding the foam pink that any camera flashes might reach in and expose.
It was a little difficult getting the hues to match. The original grey paint was several years old and you can notice a slight shade of difference. Here’s a final shot below.
So any ideas or guesses yet as to what movie I may have taken this from? Don’t be afraid to guess. After all it’s not like I’ll send Mother after you. Okay. Tomorrow night then if the weather permits I will show you the entire display. Maybe it’s just that I have one of those faces you can’t help believing. Another clue , by the way. Later.
