Default any other set painters or scenics here?

well hey painters, my names joey and I paint on movies and television shows. I have been a foreman as well as just one of the gang. I have done sign work, faux finishes as well as stone, marble and woodgraining; we have to be able to do it all. wallpaper, age, make colors, make custom paint formulas for specific applications(soap, milk, and tempra's for easy removal or restoration.) It is an interesting exciting job that requires a great amount of dedication and some expertise. I have worked on the "outside" for a IBPAT union contractor in oh, so I know what its like to work your tail off though I was shocked at how hard it was to find guys to work a full 8 hour shift. we work a min of 8-12 hrs. well lets see what kind of product info I can find around here looks like a good forum!

That sounds like an awesome job. Makes painting walls, doors and ceiling sound boring

Welocme to the board.

P.S. you mentioned faux, woodgraining wallpaper.....how about Paper Illusions? (torn wallpaper) Makes great accent walls.

I have never used that product before but we often distress wall paper and other objects for different effects. Also I would like to point out that there is a lot of prep work involved as the sets are almost completely made of wood(luan, 1x3 pine, MDF; masonite) and then plastered by a plasteror or prepped by us. a lot of times straight painting or wallpapering is involved, usually followed by some degree of ageing. Also we are responsible for ageing and painting of props and special effects equipment, as well as set dressing(the furniture and lamps and door hardwares). we do it all, I recently had to make some pie tins look burned, some apples look rotted, touch up the floor we were working on on stage and paint a platform s/g black to "freshen it up", all in one 15 hour day! With minutes of notice and less time than you'd think you could do it in.
