    Ok, you don't want to shell out the hard earned for a fancy printed back scene, so what are the alternatives ??

    This here is a rather easy method of producing a decent back scene in a few hours, depending on the size of your layout ofcourse !

    I'm ok with a 4" brush or a 9" roller, but not much else, and I'm certainly no "Banksy". His backdrops look great but I'd probably end up wearing more of the paint than the wall did!!!:avatar::avatar:

    Wow - these are great, up to Number 4 so far, love the way all the colours blend especially with the foreground.

    My last painting attempt ended with more paint on the carpet than the intended target.
    I am going to try again doing a back scene in coming months and have assembled a pile of drop cloths, brown paper by the roll and a couple of children to hide behind if the result looks like Mr Bean painted it.

    Baggy cardigans with floppy sleeves are a 'no-no'......One un-noticed blob of dark earth colour on a cuff resulted in one armchair arm dirtied, one good shirt consigned to the 'gardening clothes' collection, and very lavatorial looking stains on a house purchase document waiting to be signed....

    I tried, I failed, I destroyed the evidence.
