This fabulous fun room was painted for the Children's Ministry in an
E. TN Church. The theme is, of course Space-isn't God's Creation magnificent? I used plaster, sand, glitter and metallic
paint in this room to make the details pop on the planets and ships.
Earth-the clouds are metallic silver-it doesn't
show until the lights go out-then it glows.
Moon-I used plaster to create real looking craters. Now Entering The Mission Field is done above the Moon in Metallic
Silver. You can really see the detail in the Faux Painted background in this picture. It is very dimensional and dramatic.
The effect was created in the room with lighter faux close to earth-it fades to a darker-solid blue with lots of stars as
it travels deeper into space. The black hole was done with flat black paint which really pops next to the satin finish used
through the rest of the room. The black hole is where the words to worship songs will project on Sunday mornings. Clever!
International Space Station-I added dimensional paint on the flames so they feel 3d when you run your hand over them.
I also did all the rivets in 3d paint, and silver metallic around it so when the lights go out it glows.
The Planets and sun were all done with plaster, glitter, metallic paint and sand texture. They have a very realistic
look in small scale!
