In addition to the label making work from the last post, I also enjoyed working on painting small things.
What I painted were these wires which are hanging objects on a gallery wall.
The wires are thin, however, their reflecting metallic color was standing out against the lavender wall.
So, I got the fun work of becoming a painter and coloring these thin wires, in order to make the exhibit look better♪
Beginning with masking the objects so I wouldn't paint them accidentally,,,
I applied some paint which the museum's engineer had prepared, on to each wire by using this little painting brush.
Since I had to be careful not to dribble the paint on the objects or the floor, and also working mostly on a stepladder required more caution, it took me a while to finish all the wires, in spite of the size of the painting surface...
However, I again enjoyed this physical task at the museum :-)
Now, the wires are painted in the same color as the wall, and blending in with the gallery atmosphere.
Color difference on such thin wires seems very subtle, but it makes a big difference in viewers' eyes.
It was one of the important processes to prepare a gallery to make the best of the exhibit.
And,,, I did a quick retouch on to another wall as well.
The Orangetown Museum is preparing its gallery to welcome all the visitors to the exhibition "past/forward" in about 2 weeks.
Installation is coming toward the final stage.
