Introduction: Neverland Bedroom Mural
This is a mural that a painted in my daughters room a few years back. It's a relativly small room so i figured that I could paint the whole thing top to bottom. It was a very ambitious project and unfortunatly we had to move before I could put some of the finishing touches on it. Paint can be expensive but if you find oops paint at Walmart, Homedepot, Lowes or any hardware that messes up mixing paint, you should cut your costs down.
I cleared the furniture out and pushed anything left over in the center and covered it with drop cloths. I taped off the bottom and top of all four walls as well as the doorway, closet and around the window. I then spackled out all of the holes in the walls with $2 plaster. I had tons of reference material from childrens books to interenet images and I had photos from the ride at Disneyland too.
Masking tape is my freind! I used it quite a bit but as far as everything else most of the paint I got was $1-$5 oops paints fromt the home depot! With a enough primary and basic colors you can mix your own pallette with whatever you need. Regular spraypaint was used for the gradient sky, clouds and mountain mist. I threw a towel on the the doorway, wore my resperator and painted when nobody was home
