Some Simple Mural Work I Did Recently


This is another Curves in Fon du Lac, Wisconsin.

Everything was done freehand using a projector. The walls are a heavy knockdown texture (the contractor doing the build out didn't want to fix the walls ), so there was no way to do vinyl, so we painted them on.

The base coat is just two colors, the purple and the pink. The flowers are two lighter shades of the base coat, although it's hard to tell from the pictures, they are actually different colors.

I don't have a wide shot of the whole place. It's about 3000 square feet of commercial floor space.

Actually it was amazingly easy. I have some pictures of using the projector but I think they are on my phone... You just turn out the lights and edge like anything.

Thanks Dan

No... can't say I have... lol... Do you think we should wait for at least 6 months before taking the 'after' pics?

Re: Some Simple Mural Work I Did Recently


Thanks guys! I really enjoyed painting this club.

I can't say anything bad about Curves (even though sometimes I want to). My brother, his wife and my sister all own about five different clubs, in three states, between them. That's why if you search back through the archives you will see more pictures of them. I think I have painted four or five of them in Ohio and Wisconsin in the past three years...

My sister Angella owns the one above.
