Tony Bruno from Word of Life Worship Center in La Mesa, CA brings us these silhouette characters for their stage.
Their pastor for the month of February wanted to do a series on prayer. they talked it over and wanted to do something with silhouettes.
Tony was able to get inspiration from the iPeeps design. He wasn’t able to afford the material they used or the lighting. Plus he only had a budget of $150.
So he went to Home Depot and bought the foam backing boards that you can find in the insulation section. He bought eight—four to cut out and the other four to use as a background. They shot the silhouettes up on the board with a small projector connected to a computer. He used a jigsaw cutter to cut them out and sprayed painted them flat black.
Then they took the other solid foam boards and painted them white. They used simple plywood for the bases and bought furling wood stakes at Home Depot. Tony screwed the furling wood stakes into the bottom of the plywood for the stands and then used zip ties to hold up the cut out and a separate stand for the background. They then took the lights and put them in between the cutout and the solid board.
Total cost with paint was $135.
