We have been working on painting the Laneway connecting Cypress Ave and the Federation Trail for the last 2 months. On Sundays X 3 and an extra working bee with a last minute touch up on Wednesday.
Tony Mead from Industrial Art designs did from our suggestions and organised how we would paint it.
We started with just roller painting blocks of colour from which we cut in with the teal blue to shape the letters BROOKLYN 3012
|Then we cut the letters in with the Teal|
|Starting to come together|
|Some finer work|
|Resting on a hot day!|
|We had a good set up and 3/5 days the weather was good with only one cancellation|
|The on each letter we painted words redolent of Brooklyn's history|
|I did this letter and Quarries!|
Tony had put the final sealant coating on on Friday, and recounted how he had signs blocking the laneway when suddenly 2 dogs came hurtling along the lane (obviously their usual route) with the owner a few minutes behind. Unfortunately the dogs when sliding along the path and eventually shot off the other end. The owner said "Its looking good" Tony didn't tell him about the sealant!! They ere supposed to be on leads.
|Rugged up and getting coffee to start|
