Heritage Lifestyle Home Furnishings – 2015
Heritage contacted us about an exterior mural for the back of their large warehouse store. In the back of the warehouse building the customer comes there and pick up their furniture through large garage doors, also a GO train line is runs parallel to the rear of the building. This mural is highly visible to commuters as they travel to and from work, plus the neighbors in the area that travel by the train know that their is a great furniture store near by. Heritage Lifestyle needed a design and asked us to source one. MuralForm submitted a few designs and then narrowed it down to the right designer – the designer we used for this project was Patrick Sayers.
His style was an excellent choice for this project, his simple and graphic style was the perfect fit to engage the public with this mural. There were large areas of bright color that all had a variations of texture on them. This added a unique and attractive depth to the design.
While painting the mural we used a unique approach to create the different areas of texture by using “sea sponge” and “faux rollers“. There were many areas that we gave a different textured pattern, creating a subtle additional layer to the mural. To add an element of excitement to these areas, we mixed our base color with brighter and darker shades then applied that mixed color over the previous color. Using a variety of pressures while applying the paint allows for a variety of effects. Another example of techniques we employed while painting the mural are the pinstripes of the man in the suit, meticulously painted creating a dazzling effect. A rewarding challenge was painting the long curves of the woman’s legs. These beautiful “S” curves have such a strong elegance to them. With the correct amount of curves and elegance, the woman’s figure is strikingly feminine.
Once the primary artistic areas of the mural were finished, we moved onto to paint the lettering. Using a vinyl stencil application, we painted the name and website. This method adds a few extra steps when compared with painting basic lettering. This is particularly evident when considering the drop shadow present on the letters.
We used an all terrain scissor lift to access the full height of the wall. This was rented from our lift supplier, who supplies us with a plethora of scissor lift and boom lifts allowing us to reach amazing heights. The paint used was Benjamin Moore ben exterior soft gloss, the soft gloss adds more durability to the paint and thus will stand the test of time. We bought the paint from our long-time supplier and friends, Primetime Paint & Paper.
