Hello my darling, here is what I know about painting murals: Credentials - 10 ft wall painting experience from my sorority First - Whatever you decide to paint with, you absolutely need to prime the wall/surface you’re painting on. The best thing to use for primer is usually just cheap, white or off-white house paint, but you’ll need a pretty good amount of that if you’ve got a double-sided wall. If you have the dimensions I could recommend an amount to purchase. Second - Acrylic is totally fine to paint with, but go for the cheap stuff you can get a lot of, like think art classroom paint. Because the scale is so large, you don’t need to worry as much about the quality of the materials. The expensive stuff won’t make a difference here. (the same applies to brushes; go for cheap, horsehair brushes) Third - Remember to scale everything huge. I had problems with this the first few times I painted because I wanted to intricately detail everything. Just go big, add some details, and move on. It will take you 8 million years to finish something that huge if you pull a Michaelangelo-in-the-Sistine-Chapel. So there is my advice, my love~ I hope this helps, and didn’t come too late!
I’ve been asked to paint a mural! Which is awesome but so daunting.
It’s indoors, quite large, and a double sided wall.
With this I’ve also been asked to come up with a list of paint I need, that’s super specific, to tell the purchasers of the paint to get.
I HAVE NO IDEA WHERE EVEN TO BEGIN
LIKE DOES ACRYLIC EVEN WORK ON THE WALL
So please, help!!
