Rosco Scenic Set - Shade & Shadows - OB

Scenic Paint Kit For Practice & Experimentation

This kit of dark-toned Off Broadway scenic paints is designed for painters and students to practice different mixing techniques for creating shade and shadows in their scenery. The Shade & Shadows Scenic Set includes one 6 oz. jar of Paynes Grey, Van Dyke Brown, Raw Umber and Purple Off Broadway colors.  Scenic artists and scenic paint students can use these colors to hone their craft or mix together the different shadow-tones they need for an upcoming production.

Pro-Tip: You can use a neutral white paint to lighten the hues created when mixing together the colors in this kit. We recommend pairing our Shade & Shadows Scenic Set with a quart of Off Broadway #5350 White scenic paint.
