    5 More Questions Answered

    What kind of paint do you use for a wall mural?

    An eggshell sheen works best for mural. Steer away from satin or semi-gloss sheens, because they will be too shiny. The flat sheen is also not the best choice because it cannot be scrubbed. Eggshell, however, is just right, because it can be cleaned and it can safely accept layers of paint on top of it.

    What kind of paint do you use for a projector screen?

    For White Projector Screens, I would recommend the Digital Image Ultra White Screen Paint (check price on Amazon). For Gray Projector Screens, this Screen Paint (on Amazon) is recommended. For Silver Screens, I recommend the Paint on Screen S1 (check on Amazon).

    How do you prepare a wall for a mural?

    Prepare a Surface and Get Your Mural Design on the Wall Thoroughly clean the wall to remove any dust and grease, and leave it to dry. Consider applying a fresh coat of paint or primer before you begin your design, especially if there are color variations on the wall.

    Is the grid method cheating?

    So is drawing using a Grid cheating? No, it is not. Nothing in art is really cheating, there are just tools you are free to use. But it is also not good to rely on drawing with the grid method because you are relying on the grid instead of your eyes.

    Is tracing considered cheating?

If tracing is a part of that process, then so be it.
