Do it moun­tain wall mu­ral

Style at Home (UK) - - New-build Home -

work out the high­est point of the mu­ral, aim­ing for it to be off-cen­tre from a head­board or sofa. us­ing a long straight edge, draw the first moun­tain shape in pen­cil. once you are happy, ar­range and draw out more moun­tain peaks ei­ther side of the tallest one. Po­si­tion nar­row dec­o­ra­tor’s tape along your pen­cil out­lines. then use the tape to criss cross ran­dom shapes within the moun­tain peak. don’t for­get to tape off any skirt­ing, too, to pro­tect from paint. Choose three tonal colours of matt emul­sion paint, grad­ing from dark to light. Start­ing with the dark­est shade at the bot­tom and work­ing up to­wards the top with the lightest, paint in­side the ran­dom shapes. Paint a sec­ond coat if re­quired. once com­pletely dry (al­low a min­i­mum of four hours), care­fully peel away the tape to re­veal your mu­ral.
