Creating gold

Mankind has always been fascinated with gold – and with alchemy and creating gold. Gold is more or less defined by a surface that’s reflective. Big Image has several solutions for creating the appearance of gold or silver metallics. As our premium backdrop material is cotton, many clients chose to finish a printed stage drop with metallic paint or glitter in their scene shop. Our cotton cloth Horizon works beautifully with traditional stage paints and effects. Synthetic materials struggle in this area. We’ve also found success with guiding our clients to get artwork to give a shimmery effect, like this example of a backdrop printed in Germany on Infinitus. This drop was used with a low backlight to create a golden effect on stage.

Our artistic team happily can help create these effects for you, please do contact us for tips!
