Murals are basically large images direclty applied or painted on a wall, ceiling or other large surface. We all have seen examples, if not in homes, in schools, museums, restaurants, hospitals, on outside walls and other places. Wall murals come in two basic types: those that are applied and others that are painted onto your wall. Applied murals can include: solid vinyl fabric hanging murals window cling murals ceramic tile murals sticker murals With an applied wall mural, if you’re not comfortable doing the “affixing” yourself, there are directories such as the Guild of Professional Paperhangers and National Tile Contractors Association that will help you locate a competent professional. Painting a mural on a wall can be done by a professionial, a friend, family member…or you. Painting wall murals can be accomplished in a number of ways including: paint by number wall murals wall mural stencils image projection painting wall murals free hand Most anybody can do a painted mural the first three ways: by number, image projection or stencil. Free hand may require some giftedness. If your gifts reside in other areas of your life – and even here there are work-arounds – and you don’t have a friend or family member to do a mural, it is easy enough to find a decorative painter in many areas of the country, especially metropolitan regions. You can consult a resource such as the International Directory of Decorative Painters. The subject matter of your wall mural is almost limitless. You can grace your wall with various themes including: wildlife ,flowers,nautical,beach,fantasy,citiscapes,people,nature,sports,retro,tropical,vintage posters,transportation,art masterpieces etc.
