Large, iffen it is 'real' paint. But I bet they used something
water-based that would hose off afterwards. Otherwise, they have
to paint it twice......

Further, Hollywood is a master of the resolution game. When you start
looking closely, esp. in person, you see much the $7.50 ticketholder
never does. Remember, there's lots of grain and even more
cutting-room floor between that prop and the screen.
