Painting Murals demonstrates how to create your own murals, large or small, not only on walls and ceilings, but also on other surfaces, such as floors, shutters and screens. All the practical aspects of painting murals - materials, equipment, preparing the surface, choosing a subject and style and how to transfer your design - are covered in the first part of the book. This is followed by eight special projects, illustrated step-by-step with full-colour photographs, taken from design to completion.
Anyone who has yearned to paint a mural in their home - perhaps in the bathroom, in a child's room or on a garden wall - but never quite had the confidence to carry it out will find Painting Murals to be an indispensible source of information and inspiration.
Book Description: A practical and beautiful beginners guide to creating murals at home.
