Does anyone know about painting murals?

wabagoo:

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!!

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!

Louboutins are redefining the “nude” pump— now available in five shades.  Great initiative!

Thank you Christian Louboutin. 

This is so important.

Yes, thank you for making more shoes literally none of us will ever be able to afford.

Fashion trickles down though. When a high-end designer like Christian Louboutin acknowledges that there should be variety in “nude” pumps, it will invariably be copied by cheaper and more accessible brands. This is a huge, positive thing.

"I don’t want to film a ‘slice of life’ because people can get that at home, in the street, or even in front of the movie theater. They don’t have to pay money to see a slice of life. And I avoid out-and-out fantasy because people should be able to identify with the characters. Making a film means, first of all, to tell a story. That story can be an improbable one, but it should never be banal. It must be dramatic and human. What is drama, after all, but life with the dull bits cut out. The next factor is the technique of film-making, and in this connection I am against virtuosity for its own sake. Technique should enrich the action. One doesn’t set the camera at a certain angle just because the cameraman happens to be enthusiastic about that spot. The only thing that matters is whether the installation of the camera at a given angle is going to give the scene its maximum impact. The beauty of the image and movement, the rhythm and the effects—everything must be subordinate to the purpose."
