Background prep for special effects

I spent my entire long week-end in the studio working on some new stuff. It was exciting to be trying this new technique out.
 I rolled out some Canvas for the backdrop.
 I stapled it tight to the wall and began painting it flat black.
I set up a table in front of the painted black drop to place a fish tank for some of the effects shots.
AT the far end of the canvas I shot the paint being applied to the surface. I set up time lapse photography on my computer and began having fun making a lot of drippy messiness. This is the end result of the messy process. On the screen it will look like a painting coming to life over a short period of time. I will use this as some texture on some of my layers.
