Re: Scenery Backdrops..help!
- Another great solution for backdrops that are lightweight is using the
sheets of foam that builders use for insulation. These cost about $10
a sheet and are 4x8. I build or have some Dads build a frame with
1x4's so I can hinge other frames for a corner of a building or rotate
the pieces for another scene. I've tried luan and canvas and the foam
is durable, glue-able, and lightweight enough to use over and over
again. I've even used cut pieces to make the molding around windows,
fronts of cars, scoreboards (for Grease), Jud's shack for Oklahoma...
You need to peel the plastic liner off the side you want to paint and
use acrylics, tempera, or latex -- whatever is available! Neat Stuff!
