Went to pick up some paint at the store yesterday for Hello Little Human Female! The guy at the paint counter looked at my crazy colors and said politely "What room are you painting?" I replied "It's for a stage set". The look of relief was funny.
My paint store that I go to (Lowe's) actually has some really great faux finishing and dragging brushes. The one that I really like using is a 6 inch wide short haired brush, makes great wood grain.
Enjoy reading my encounters in and around theatre set design.
