While helping to paint the set for Three Penny Opera I learned a new painting technique called scumble. It is a three person operation where each person has their own paint roller. Two people had two different colors and the last person was water. The two people with colors would work together on a section of the flat alternating their colors using short strokes of paint. The person on water would go over the two colors blending them together. To create the look of bricks on the flat a sponge glued to a piece of wood was used like a stamp and went over the scumble.
