I made the parachute portion by layering strips of plaster and fabric over a balloon. The paint treatment was something I sponged on because I wanted to have a very textural and interesting look. I based out the first coat of lavender with a brush. I liked the idea process because it was very democratic. I probably wouldn't have planned it out that much if I had been left to my own devices. I think the paint was really successful because it turned out exactly how I envisioned it. If I were to do it again, I would spend more time making the KSU sign more personal and interesting and I would have painted the inside of the parachute.
