Lucy stopped by this morning to keep cutting. Hiba and I painted the letters.
White it is.
We had a lot of leftover wall paint, which means we not only have more than enough paint, but the letter faces will gain a bit of rigidity and protection since it’s epoxy paint.
After trying to paint the letters on the wall, we shifted to a make-shift table. Easier to avoid paint running.
We made a drying rack.
Protection. Recommended originally by Jennifer Willet. We should actually have more of these on hand.
The drying rack doing it’s job.
But, of course, it didn’t fit many letters, so we just started lying them out on the table.
Two brushes — these might be leftovers from Make This Better.
Stack of postcards!
Oh, and our library cards for the Letter Library.
The back of the postcards, as you can see — lots to come!
We met to do another round of projection tests, this time outside. While we still only had two projectors to work with for the test, we definitely verified an increase in brightness on outdoor surfaces (both with ambient light and without), though this increase is not equal to the amount of light we’re throwing at it—that is, shining two projectors with the same images at the same point does not double the brightness.
