Once we had the sketch approved I had to double & triple check all the measurements of my sketch to the final construction measurements. Then we got started by creating pounce patterns of each section from the reference image. The outer and inner rings were each divided into 8 very large sections.
Pounce Pattern – a technique involving the use of a pouncing wheel (like a pizza wheel with spikes) to outline an image on a thin surface…like thin copy paper. Then transferring your image onto the canvas by ‘pouncing’ chalk powder through the perforated lines.
But before those pounce patterns could be used, Remco had to prep and prime 500 pounds of muslin canvas. And of course, right when he started, Vegas switched from sunny and warm to cold and dreary…which makes prepping canvas take double the time. Oye.
