Mural Repairs /Restorations in the Laser Tag Room at Party Jungle Indoor Amusement Park, Phoenix.  http://www.party-jungle.com/#faq

Seascape mural_Party Jungle Amusement Park_Xandriss2

Here is the completed full wall mural of the seascape scene by the door.

I was hired to repair five murals in the Black light/ Laser Tag room for renovations before the new Party Jungle Indoor Amusement Park was to open in Phoenix, AZ.  The walls were semi repaired from damage leftover from the former owner and management.  The artwork needed to be repainted in the blank areas and the murals restored seamlessly to their original quality.

The murals were created with paints designed to fluoresce under black light.  This is a cool feature in that each mural has dual looks and moods. They glow brightly with the room dark and the black lights on and feel a little bit magical. They also have the beautiful colors, looks and feel of traditional murals in ordinary lighting.

I had some help for the project from my husband, who is also an artist.  He painted one wall and we collaborated together on another.  Here are the Before and Afters of the five murals repaired, both under black light and ordinary light.
