These painters are hard at work on the floor for The life and dath of Larry Benson (see the page). We used a four color painting technique. The base coat was a dark brown. One student used a roller to lay in this color while the other three used brushes attached to sticks to add wood grain patterns. Each student had a different color, ranging from a brown that was a bit lighter then the paint on the roller, to a very light yellow. The fifth student had a dry brush and would lightly blend all the colors. Everyone was painting in one direction thus creating the look of wood planks for this suburban home. After the floor was dry, we sealed it with a water based clear sealer. Once this was dry, we took a Sharpie magic marker and drew black lines to make outlines of wood floor boards.  tech4a
