In film and television production, it is often cumbersome and costly to use authentic materials in set construction. Instead, wood paneling, marble countertops, or titanium alloy bulkheads are replicated and approximated with cheaper stand-ins.

As highly specialized artists, these members of the paint department focus on disguising one material for another and tricking the camera’s lens.
