Just some thoughts on murals and materials. Last year, our NAHS created
an interior mural for a local hospital, 9 x 21'. We used Crayola Wall
paints, available through Ben Moore Paints. The palette of colors
available is terrific, and available by the quart. The dealer gave us
the paints at contractor cost.
The clean-up was easy too! The 'kids' enjoyed also using a product
which bears a logo they are familar with as student artists, which made
us feel like artists versus wall painters.
We used a variety of sized wall paint brushes to lay color and shapes
in, and then moved to art brushes to bring definition and detail in the
latter stages of the mural.
It was great fun!!

Artfully yours,
