I will alter the opening and it also gets jungle foliage in the background, but I need to have full-scale transfer drawings by Friday, so I'm moving forward with that.
I just like how this looks with the grid. I thought I was doing a scale of 2"=1', but I missed a calculation step. It'll work fine though, if I make my full-scale grid have 9" squares.....2"=9"
I'm testing paints for bond, paint flow, durability, and receptivity to (and/or need for) top coat.
The paint base I'll be painting over is a glossy commercial grade latex acrylic paint. It'd be nice to paint the entire house with this Asian look. Concrete block is so style receptive.
