Painting The Miniature Skull Island Wall

Eric Kessler the filmmaker that had designed the six foot long wooden wall had cut it in half to make transporting it to my studio easier.

A fact I was thankful for when it came time to lug it outside to spray it with grey auto body primer.

After priming it I dry brushed several acrylic colors over the entire wall to make the stone texture stand out. Next I mixed up a thinned down mixture of acrylic paints to make a wash. Using a soft brush I applied this over the stone and wiped off the excess with a rag. The wash settled in the cracks and crevices giving an antiquated look to the wall.
