Unfortunately, to quote Fresca, when she saw the DVDs overlapping each other: "the fingers look like a bunch of worms". yecch!
I tried sandblasting. I tried scraping. I tried peeling. None of those made it any prettier.
So I've had to resort to painting. Here I am putting a thin coat of blue over the DVDs. You can still tell they are the archbishop's DVDs--the fingers show through--but they are toned down.
They don't look like blue worms. Whew!
There are about 800 DVDs surrounding me in this photo.
