Sketch your design and attach it with your application or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Designs that work best are big, bold, and bright! We supply paint in white, black, yellow, orange, red, green and blue colors.
This is an outside event, but we ask all painters and parents to wear masks while they are working.
On your painting day, go to Mr. Brown's Park on the 100 block of West Broad Street to get your window assignment and paint.
Please say Hi to the store folks where you'll be painting and and thank them.
You should bring: paint brushes, water, newspapers to protect the sidewalk, and sponges. A kitchen stool is handy to have. Masking window ledges makes clean up easier.
Wipe the window down with a dry paper towel. Don't use window cleaners, which can leave a film. Start with darker colors first and let first coats have time to dry. Dabbing paint on a little at a time can make your images stand out.
Foam brushes are OK if they are dry, but bristle brushes are best. Brown's Hardware has both
If your scene has light colors, you can put down a solid background "wash" color first. A light grey color works well.
Be sure to sign your beautiful work and take some photos. Check back at the desk when finished and get a (chocolate) kiss.
If rain is forecast, please check for instructions here, www.halloweenfc.com, on the morning of your painting day. If there is last-minute rain, someone will be at the painting desk to answer questions.
Cleaning up is almost as much fun as painting. Bring newspaper to cover the sidewalk and lots of water and sponges. Soak the paint well in small sections and it will come off easily.
Cleaning up is a great way to thank our merchants for participating.
