Making Murals

A Practical Handbook for Wall Painting & Mural Art to Enhance Your Home

Clara Wilkinson


This practical guide to mural painting explains all the key techniques and design styles you need so that you can get creative in your own home and make your walls unique.

The authors outline the practicalities you need to consider when you are planning a mural such as the level of light and space, where to find inspiration, how to use colour and different styles of painting. The authors explore various techniques for transferring from paper onto a wall or ceiling including the traditional grid method and their own innovative ‘doodle grid’ method.

Different painting styles are explored using step-by-step photography and instructions, with advice on how to combine different techniques to create stunning results. Each of these projects is based on a particular theme including Chinoisserie, graphic botanical, celestial, tropical jungle, linear abstract, florals and a painterly abstract design.
