How To Paint A Mountain Wall Mural


I’m Maddie and I’m going to show you how
to paint a mountain wall mural. You don’t need to move mountains to make
this mural happen. I’m going to show you how easy it is. ♪ [music] ♪ Painting a mural in a kid’s bedroom is a
super fun way to add some extra color and extra impact into the bedroom without
having to change all your decor and furnishings. To paint a mountain wall mural,
you will need your paint of choice, a tin opener, some tape, a damp cloth,
paintbrushes and rollers, paint tray, a drop sheet, something with a straight
edge and a pencil. Let’s get this mountain adventure started. Wash your walls down with sugar soap
before taping and painting. I’m using a level to mark out where our
mountains are going to go, but you can use anything
with a straight edge. Work out where you’d like your mountain
peaks to go first, then you can rule in the lines from there. If you’d made a mistake with your pencil,
don’t worry, a damp cloth will wipe it off. Once you’re happy with how your mountains
look, start taping. Tape on the outside of your pencil lines
so you can just paint over the pencil marks. ♪ [music] ♪ Now you’ve finished taping,
go in with a damp cloth just to help seal these tape lines so you get a nice,
clean finish and you don’t get any paint bleeds. We now have our wall all taped up. We’ve got our tape on the outside of our
pencil lines there, so we can just paint straight over that and you’re not going to
see it at the end. We’re going in with a couple of different
colors here so we can create the full illusion of a mountain range. We’re going to chuck our drop sheet down
so we’ve got our floors nice and protected and let’s get started. Don’t forget to give your paint a good
shake. I’m going to start with a paintbrush to
help us cut in around the lines and then we’ll fill in the middle with a roller. ♪ [music] ♪ I’ve got two coats of paint on these
mountains now. We’re going to add the final touch and
we’re going to add some snowcaps. If you’ve got shaky hands,
you might want to tape it up, but I’m just going to freehand. The snowcaps are done. All that’s left to do is peel off the
tape. ♪ [music] ♪ Now your kids’ imaginations can run wild
on mountain adventures with this beautiful mountain mural. If your kids are a little bit older,
I’m sure they’d love to be involved with this and they can see their own
handiwork for years to come. ♪ [music] ♪
