Instead of brooming on the white paint, they splashed the paint onto the landscape fabric. This made it look more like bubbling sea foam – a wave splashing over the stage.
They bought a 4′x100′ role of black landscape fabric, cut it to the needed lengths, then used brooms to randomly splatter flat white paint on them. Then they attached 4′ long 1″x2″ black wood slats to the top and bottom. These wood slats allowed the fabric panels to simply hang off 3″ screw set in the walls.
The set was lit with 9 ADJ Mega Tri Bars, 8 Elation Opti Tri Pars, and 2 Elation Platinum 5Rs.
