View Full Version : UV 3-D Floor Ideas

08-22-2009, 09:46 AM
In our attraction we have several of our floors painted in 3-D.

-a vortex

-a wooden plank over water

-a stone walk way surrounded by fire

We are looking to add some more detail to some other floors in the haunt because most of them are just black. Does anyone have any cool ideas aside from the basic foot prints, spider webs, or spattering? Any ideas or photos will be appreciated. Not looking for something to detailed, just want to break up the solid blackness!

Here is some inspiration
These can be done by projecting the image from where you want them to be viewed, that will tell you where to draw your lines, I do not have a pic yet but I did a ceiling in this style. the scare came and distracted them before the illusion was broken.
I also saw a ramp hallway that was not a ramp, they painted the walls on either side black. the floor of the 20ft hallway had perspective lines that started at the guests and headed towards the other side of the hall, taking about three inches off of each side (outside of that was painted black to match the walls). The hall its self started as red/orange and gradually went through the colors to end at bule, it looked like you were going down a ramp. there were alot of funny walks in that hallway.
Hope this helps,

Paint a half sillouette peaking around a corner, just a flat black shape of a hooded figure, one shoulder will do. People catch this out of the corner of their eye and......

Thanks guys. Allen I really like those chalk drawings, especially the one titled "Politicians Meeting Their End". I think I'm gonna give something like that a shot (minus the politicians). I think if it was done right, people would be afraid to walk over it. Keep the ideas coming.
Thanks again.
