I always starts like this.... stuff in a hallway and inspiration on the walls.
I had kids help me paint all the flats white. I always start with a clean slate.
We started by painting the ground black and adding "curly" grass. As per my tradition, I made the "grass" spell the names of the people that helped work on the set.
I had some great helpers: Hannah, Lillian and Claire.
It took us 4 days of work to complete the backdrop.
