For the past few weeks, I have been working on creating background features for a wedding reception that took place on a theater stage.
My part was two fold. First, I needed to take 22 banisters with this 80's "marbleized" finish and turn them into old stone.
The finished product:
Then I need to transform these 36" diameter by 18' tall sono tubes (=HUGE) into limestone columns.
And that's what I did- travertine lime plaster was used with many hours spent perched on a very tall ladder that I traveled up and down on as I moved my way around the columns. I knew them well at the end!
The sheer scale of the columns and backdrop (which was done by a very talented scenic artist whose name I cannot reveal for a bit) were awesome.
A subtle wedding palette of whites and off whites were used for the flowers that were placed on wood candlesticks embellished with bits of gold.
I wished I could have been a guest!
