Taste the Rainbow

Another design brought to us by Andrew Hunt’s amazing team and his blog, Production Musings. This backdrop uses 2’x4′ pieces of white coroplast stapled to studs fastened on the back wall. To create the wave effect, every other end was offset about 8″ from the stud.

The lighting for this stage design was comprised of AC Lighting Color Splits (for the sides), High End Studio Beams above the backdrop, ETC S4 Jr for backlighting, and S4 Jr Zooms for the frontlight.

If you’re wanting to use this design in your church, you’ll definitely want to check out the blog post for better details about the implementation.

  1. hey just wondering what coroplast is. We have used spandex wrapped around boxes before but i would love to know where to buy this and what some of its best uses are since i’ve seen it mentioned here on the site pretty often
    Thanks.

    • Coroplast (a brand name of corrugated plastic) is basically the material they make those real estate signs from. They have the grooves inside that let you put a thick wire through to stick the signs into the ground. Does that clarify what it is? It's really easy to cut and very lightweight.

      • Is there any way possible to get a copy of plans for this design? We are interested in trying this for a state-wide youth event hosted by our church in Alaska.

  2. Hey guys! I just happened upon this site: http://www.coroplast.com/ I thought that might help. You can purchase it at many of your local sign shops. We purchase ours from a sign shop in NC.

  3. Can you send me the plans for this! We are getting ready to start that on our stage today

    • Mike, did you guys use this design at your building? I'd love to see pics of your final work if you did! We're glad that it's getting some use and helping generate ideas. Jonathan is doing a fantastic job with this site.

  5. I’m Interested in implementing this design, I noticed that the website no longer works. Would you be able to let me know specifically how this was created?

  7. Our stage design team is going to build this for our spring stage design. I think with our new LEDs it will look great. The plan is to cut the pieces of coroplast into 1’x2’s so our 10’x22′ back wall can also serve as a “stone wall” backdrop in our Easter production. I am trying to figure out how to have the studs built that the pieces will be fastened to so the studs are not seen coming up through the front projections. Secondly, is it a better idea to cut the coroplast into long 1′ strips and score the coroplast every 2′ so it can be stapled easier to the studs or can we cut the coroplast into about 140 1×2 pieces and attach each of them individually?

You can also pick up sheets at some home improvement stores such as Home Depot.  (Example 1  •  Example 2  •  Example 3  •  Example 4) […]
