Paint Elevation Examples
Paint Elevations should include:
- A painted sample, in scale or full scale, of the painted surface finish.
- Color swatches large enough to match paint to (about 1.5").
- Notes regarding the paint process, technique, or other importnat information.
- Research examples if appropriate.
- A title block including name of show, theatre/ producer, director, and designer, scale of sample, date.
- Names or numbers for paint swatches.
- Can be painted directly on vellum illustration board, or sample can be painted on Bristol board or Xerox copy and twin-tacked to illustration board or mat board.
- Elevations should be covered with mylar, both to protect the evelation and to allow the scenic artists to easily mix paint to the swatches.
- Surfaces and be textures, scored or layered if that makes the elevation more descriptive.
