Palomino Layout - Backdrop Painted, finally
Posted by Tom Bryant_MR on Thursday, August 08, 2019 7:17 PM

Progress, finally!

Been away from the forum since early July.  Sold our old home and that consumed a lot of time.

In the last week I completed the basic paint on the backdrop.  From several posts ago I was having issues getting color and blending right. I settled on this blue.

I have the deck fastened down and just this afternoon I put down the foam using caulk. Tonight I am printing the track plan for this section :-)

I agree , the blue is just about right ! I have seen alot of backdrops where the blue is too dark and it really takes away from everything in front of it . Do you have a trackplan posted some place?

For some reason, I can't see the picture. In the OP's post, all I see is a blue box with a message in it
