mural designs for bedroom wall

ian loveall: hi! i'm ian loveall with expertvillage and today we're looking at mural painting. so, what i've got in front of me here arejust some basic, basic materials you'll need to get started. an assortment of brushes asmany different sizes as you can find, you'll never know what you're going to need. rags,a duster, sponges, rollers, plastic wraps, sand paper, paint and acrylic medium and gloves,i hate using gloves some people like to keep their hands clean, what can i say. you wantto collect an assortment of brushes of all the different sizes you can find. i also usea variety of bristles you'll notice this has a very coarse, rough bristle on it. this isan acrylic brush it's great for--use with acrylics and oils. it has the stiff bristlebecause the paint is generally thicker and


you need more tension to get it actually onthe wall and place where you want it to go. i also use water color brushes, which arevery fine and very soft. these are great for doing washes and glazes and things where thepaint is going to be going on in a very, very thin layer. the brushes come in several differenttypes. you have your basic round, flat, and a filbert, which i don't use very often, infact i don't even think i have one. but what a filbert is well, it's similar to this. thisisn't a true filbert, but it sort of a blend between a flat and round. it's a flat brushbut it has a rounded tip and a little bit more volume than a flat brush. i work almostexclusively in flat brushes that's just a preference. the only other two that i favorare this fan brush, which is great for creating


a variety of different strokes. i'll demonstratesome of them for you later. this got a very wide and very flat bristle. and then thispouncing brush, which is just sort of a mop of bristles that can be used for anythingfrom stenciling to creating swirl effects. i like to use this one painting clouds, prettyuseful thing to have around. so i would say of this jar of brushes, i only use this handfulright here. so, you know, you'll pick your favorites and experiment, see which ones youlike the best.
