Setup for painting involves taping two 9 x 12 drop cloths and surrounding protective cloths and tarps to the pavement, resulting in an approximately 26 x 19 work area.
The shirt-festooned canvas is taped in the work area’s center.
Using Razor scooters, a dozen campers take turns laying down layers of paint, primarily primary pastels. Some of the kids helped mix paint.
Applying paint via scooter.
The dried canvas with shirts is rolled up returned to my garage. More painting planned for the next day, although now the shirts are barely visible.
I thought there would be enough bleed-through to cover the back of the shirts as well. No such luck. So I extract every shirt, detape it, flip it over, and retape it.
