the joy of painting

Friday 30th August 2002

Oh to spend a day off from work armed with a paint-brush and roller! Whilst many look forward to a day off work to do a bit of d-i-y when you're set-building it can get a bit tiresome! The new corridor set has twenty two supports each needing painting. There are four door arch assemblies each needing three coats of paint (undercoat/primer, then gloss and then the final colour). There are three pairs of doors each with the same 3 coats of paint. Still, it all has to be done as these set elements hope to be in use in the next few weeks if all goes to plan. Suffice to say there'll be some pictures if all goes well. This brief news item has been typed with silver fingers and the distinct aroma of white spirit.
