There is no right or wrong way to create a mural. Mural design is basically the same as old school signage and advertising design. There are many techniques that were used to reproduce a design onto a large scale space, and replicate it if necessary. But an important factor in determining what technique works best comes down to a few key factors:
- Material in which the mural will be placed on (wood, cinderblock, brick) Your paint will be dependant on the material
- Interior or Exterior
- Scale and Space
I have yet to try all these techniques but as I create more murals I will be implementing them depending on the space.
For the love mural I free handed the colours and shapes and taped off the letters for a precise look. Check out the video for the quick process.
Until next time,
