#75 "Take a Stand… Take a Seat"
by Cheryl Bartley & Priscilla Newcomb
The chair before I stenciled on the words.
This is the outline that I created for the chair. We were going to
paint it but then we decided to have Priscilla make a digital image from Rosa's mug shot. She made it with one side white and one side black as you can see on the finished chair. From that point we decide to glue it to a painted blood red wooden board and then coated it with gloss finish.
