… it gleams and reflects – an unparalleled beauty
Here is a quick photo case history of our flash splash for Bunga Bunga disco club in Battersea, London.
Creating the sphere mirror ball base coat.
It was really cold and after an hour right at our backs 3 huge reverse cycle air con units started up, blowing FREEZING air into our kidneys!! Time to move inside!!
Minus 3 degs… brrrrr
Inside was much better but the board was wobble board – … but we got it under control and stitched in the detailing to the globe which completely transformed the piece..
Finally I laid on Glow in the Dark phosphorous paint to all white areas and the job was done!
Tonal transition on the mirror tile details created the sensation of light and 3D
