Many people have a passion for drawing, expressing what they think or feel through this art form. Other times it can be a good way to add a touch of life and light at home or to colorize the rooms of the children with special designs or fairytale characters to create a calmer environment for their childhood: this is where comes in the mural. Here’s how to make a mural at home.

The first step is to choose the wall on which you want to draw to make sure it’s clean. Once this is done you need to brush a coat of white paint to create a surface and a perfect backdrop for the creation of the drawing. At the same time it is important to choose a wall without water, solid and well structured in such a way that the design is not altered over time.

This is very important because the fix during the implementation phase of the murals is discouraged because cleaning the wall might be compromised.
