    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.

    What an awesome set of videos truly inspiring have already experimented on pieces of cardboard, hope the recycle guys appreciate good art when they find it, they will just have to look in another bin to find it. :avatar: :avatar:

    Are there any on how to paint a cutting into a backdrop that anyone knows of?

    Beware the genie is out of the bottle. :facepalm:
