Guitar fish and all that jazz..

One of the other spaces was to be like a storage container where all the object could be protected. There were various items loaded behind windows to resemble that of a vending machine.
This room was to look very different compared to the rest of the rusty submarine- a little classier.

I got to use Bristol bronze paint! I'd only ever used powders when painting metalics, so having it already made up was a bonus, especially when we didn't have a lot of time on our hands.
We had a reddish base coat and painted the bronze on top, then used water to sponge it off, giving a nice patchy texture.

super shiny floor, merci freaky swiss glaze...

In the middle of the room was a big sofa, that had been designed and made specially for the exhibition, this was sat in front of an aquarium type which was filled with various different shaped guitars that looked like fish.

my beautiful upholstering skills...

little fishies....
