Kicking facade ass on Saturday has lessened some of the stress. I'm still behind where I want to be, but the main part of the facade construction is very nearly complete, and some of the auxiliary bits have been started as well. About 80% sure that painting will commence this week. There will be more sawing of foam bits tonight.

I still need a graphic-arty type person ASAP to do some graphic-arty type stuff. It needs to be directly on the foam, so it's not particularly something that can be done over the internet.

Painting for sure on Saturday.

Consider me your back-up if you want to.

I have a reasonable amount of skill with drawing, I can take direction and produce something tolerable from a rough drawing or picture from the intertoobs, and I understand what you mean by drawing on foam.

Because of my lack of experience, I'm not super skilled with cutting foam. I'm adept with simple stuff, more complex things tend to take me ungodly amounts of time.

This will actually be on 1/2" foam with the plastic coating. What I'm looking for is someone who can draw on the plastic with a sharpie, then cut it away to make a kind of stencil-- then we'll erode the styro with some acetone or other solvent. Done the process before and with some caution it works pretty well.

The foam will be pre-cut.

I have never used the plastic coated foam.

I don't know if it's a big stretch or not, but I'd guess that I may be out of my element.

If it's just a flat stencil you're after, why not just grid it out from a smaller drawing?

That's what will likely happen-- I was just hoping to avoid doing that.
Actually I'll probably print out full-size on several sheets of paper and transfer through with an xacto knife.
