How to Build a Silhouette Screen

Rose Brand congratulates our third blog contest winner, Lauren Shaw. Lauren's blog entry described how she built a Silhouette Screen using Rose Brand's Spandex.

Here is how SHE did it..   

She used Rose Brand's white spandex and stretched it to a size of approximately 10' x 15'. She inserted grommets around all four edges and constructed a rectangular frame using PVC tubing and fittings. She interlaced rope through the grommets and fastened it in several spots on the frame securing it tightly. She created a 7 minute video to project on the screen from behind, which also served the purpose of creating the silhouettes on the screen. Their performers used belly dance and hula hoop tricks to give the audience a silhouette show they would not soon forget!
