Try this paint splatter  technique if you are looking for an unusual and visually striking design for a wall in your home or business. This is a photo of the finished project from my hair salon where it was always a focus of interest and great conversation starter.  The advantage of this technique over a free-hand design is that it keeps the effect more true to form and realistic, and it is much less messy than trying to throw paint on the wall!

Step 1: Tools for the job

You will need an overhead projector.  It does not have to be a color projector, but the job will be easier if you have access to one.  You can typically find old overhead projectors at schools, libraries, or pawn shops.  In addition to the overhead projector you will need a clear transparency sheet, a washable marker, paint, and paintbrushes (mid-size and fine point).
Nice paint and salon :)
Thanks for the great instructable, this weekend I am going to borrow an overhead projector from work. I have a coffee colored wall, do you have any suggestions for good colors to contrast with it?
I love it! The effect is very striking and beautiful, brilliant idea :)
This is pretty rad. I like this idea and have a overhead projector lying around. Giving me some ideas...!
