View Full Version : Need Mural Help

09-24-2004, 08:33 AM
I am designing and directing a mural project for a Jr High School and need some help. It is going to be inside on a concrete block wall that has been painted. I am thinkin to first prime it and then I do not know what type paint to use. It is a very large area. The kids will be helping and I am sure paint will get wasted so I am concerned about cost. Do you think I could get away with using the large bottle of craft paint such as Americana or Apple Barrell you get from Wal-Mart and then maybe seal it up afterwards so it won't wear off. Any ideas.
I have 3 months for this project and it is going to be a large sea-life mural with the book store becoming a "surf shack". This school is on the beach.
I say mural but it is a large courtyard area with many walls. I will post as we work on it.
Thanks for any help!
