Freeze! Rock!

The first step to our Sabres 40th Anniversary exhibit installation is almost complete. The backdrop to our 2 display cases are being made to look like skated-on ice. These will be the background to the memoribillia that will be on display. Our design team came up with a great technique to recreate ice and our designer Dan spent a few nights perfecting the 'ice.' We painted the back of the cases and the back of plastic sheets white. Then the front of the sheets were attacked with sandpaper to dull the finish and add the skate marks.

Today we installed the backgrounds and tomorrow we add more 'full case' marks. I think so far it looks great and I will post more as we continue. Our deadline is to have it up and looking great for the first pre-season Buffalo Sabres game later this month.
