Now that everything is ready to go, it’s time to prep the wall surface by washing it down with detergent water if necessary before priming the area with two coats of primer. Allow each coat of primer at least 24 hours of drying time before moving on to the painting phase.

Start by sketching out your design on paper first so that you have an outline from which to work when applying paint onto the wall itself; this will help keep everything neat while avoiding major mistakes during the application stage. When painting directly on walls using a brush or roller technique apply one even coat at a time until desired results are achieved then allow ample time for drying between each layer applied as needed until the finished product is achieved; use stencils tape as desired for added detail prior to the final coating as well as adding texture like sponges rags etc, also use sealant over the entire area once the project is complete in order to protect artwork longterm you may even consider having a professional sealant applied depending upon budget, Additionally add extra touches like glitter & beads, etc., if so desired let imagination run wild!
