Painting Walls?

Recommended Posts

I'm planning to paint my wall. By that I mean I want to make an actual painting, such as a landscape across the with of my entire wall. The idea is simple, I choose and image, cover the wall with the primer, and I paint it with the same paints that people use to paint their walls. I'm planning on buying a half a liter or more of each of the primary colors, and then just mix them.

 

 

 

My question to anybody willing to read this is; will it work? Is it possibly a bad idea to use the same paints that people simply color their walls with? Or should I just paint it like I'm painting on canvas or paper?

First of all, mark your wall and drawing in pencil. And mark in single lines shading and minor detail. And make sure you have it all planned. You definitely want a half a liter or white and black as well, and mroe than just the primary colours. Get a few sample pots around US $3 or something.

Do as Shiny said and pencil out what you're doing. It might help to draw the original in miniature just to get a feel for the painting.

 

 

 

Also I'm not sure about paint, but I would go with either acrylic (art paint) or latex paint (instead of oil because it's easier to mix/clean up) And you can probably go to a local hardware store (Home Depot, Lowe's) and pick up a few pints/gallons of mis-mixed paint that may not be exactly the color, but since you're going to be mixing them it shouldn't matter.

 

 

 

And when it's finished (or even to track the progress) a pic would be nice.
