The Diablo is in the Detail: Drytac ReTac Appears at The Mirage
A new restaurant at The Mirage hotel and casino complex in Las Vegas is to open soon, featuring dramatic wall murals printed on Drytac ReTac Textures.
Opened in 1989, the 3,044-room Mirage is a staple of the Las Vegas Strip, featured in dozens of movies including 2001's Ocean's Eleven. Its latest attraction is Diablo's Cantina restaurant, newly open, which is decorated in vibrant wall murals with a Mexican-inspired fiery skeleton design.
Las Vegas grand format print and installation company Screaming Images printed and fitted the murals, drawing on 18 years' experience working on projects from the worlds of sport, retail and entertainment. It counts MGM, the Raiders, NFL, NBA, Kawasaki and Shoe Palace amongst its customers.
To achieve the depth and visual appeal required for the incredible Diablo's wall coverings, Screaming Images chose Drytac ReTac Textures in Canvas, a matte white phthalate-free polymeric PVC film with an embossed textured finish. In addition to Canvas, ReTac Textures is available in Sand, Linen and Woodgrain, all offering a textured finish that gives an extra visual and touchable element to high-quality artwork.
ReTac Textures polymeric self-adhesive vinyl features an ultra-removable adhesive backing that can be easily and repeatedly removed and repositioned with no damage to the surface underneath. With up to five years' durability in indoor environments, ReTac Textures is also an ideal choice for long-term graphics projects - such as at The Mirage.
James Swanson, Principal and Owner, Screaming Images, says Diablo's was a 'super cool' project to work on.
"We chose ReTac Textures because of its compatibility with a long-term display in a high-end restaurant," he comments. "We love the Drytac ReTac Textures product and Drytac's service."
ReTac Textures is available in a thickness of 150μ (6 mil) and roll widths of up to 1,370mm (54"). It is compatible with solvent, eco-solvent, UV and latex printing technologies and can also be used for exterior graphics projects.
