This summer, 2013 we painted a Tuscon wall mural with large letters that spelled “TUCSON” (backwards). On the opposite side of the room, there’s a big mirror. It looks pretty cool! See also our recent post about the “Sunshine climate club” poster from that same job.
With the help of my son, we designed this photoshop.
I converted the design to a drawing that would give me the measurements.
Using the blue tape to mark the verticals, I set a laser to signify the base line.
I needed a bright snap line to really show.
We snapped where we could to draw the letters.
Jumping to the sample, see the progression of steps.
The final decorative steps were an aging with glaze and a sanding to expose the aggregate.
