This week, its all about Dribbling!!
So what exactly is Dribbling?
Well, you know those statues at parks that have this awesome worn, streaky, stony look? THAT is what dribbling does, and it's awesome. So let us show you how it's done. Today, we have resident creative thinker Brett on the case.
What does Brett have to say about dribbling, you ask?
"The dribbling technique is really cool, it looks amazing when it comes together and it's a lot of fun to do. Does look a bit like chocolate when you do it though" Brett laughs.
Okay, now that we're all super excited to get this show on the road, we have to address two key things:
1. What's the main objective?
2. Safety. Safety. and Safety.
When we use the dribbling technique, the goal is always to make the statue look older and slightly eroded, as if it's been sitting in a park fountain for a decade or so. Let's take a look at the before and after:
Now that we know what we're aiming for, we need to make sure we're taking safety precautions. Today we're using a spray gun, so we have to make sure we're wearing safety glasses (even if it's just water!!)
And now that we're all geared up - time for the fun part...
Step One: Spray the statue with water in order to allow the paint to run smoothly
Step Two: Time to dribble!
Step Three: Spray again with water to give it a more natural aged look
And there you have it! Your exclusive guide to dribbling thanks to our amazing warehouse team! Let's have a look at the final result...
