1 Roughly sketch the position of the mountains on a piece of paper.
2 If the existing wall colour is not suitable as a base coat, first paint the entire wall (we chose Dulux Bleached Lichen 2; it’s a lovely warm shade that doesn’t look too yellow).
3 Using your pencil sketch as a guide, mark out the outlines for the first two mountains with masking tape. Try to keep the lines as straight as possible.
4 Using the first colour (we chose Dulux Dusted Moss 1), paint the mountains. Carefully pull off the masking tape and allow at least 30 minutes for the paint to dry; repeat with the second colour (ours is Dusted Moss 2).
5 Wait at least 30–60 minutes for the paint to dry thoroughly and then mark off the lines for the snow-capped peaks with the masking tape.
6 Paint the white for the snow; remove the masking tape. >>
