Have you ever gazed up at the night sky, lit only by the glow of moonlight? If so, you know how truly beautiful that endless night sky is. Even those living in the most remote suburbs of the world know that their little slice of heaven above is nothing short of spectacular. Every night, no matter how remote, your little corner of earth is filled with awe-inspiring celestial beauty.
Scrapbookers have long since been using stencils to create unique art scenes, especially night sky and star mural designs. Now, these stencils can also be used to create a star burst of color in the sky. This project, which also makes great kids' craft projects, is surprisingly easy to do and surprisingly beautiful.
You will need a set of vinyl cling stamps to do this project, and you will also need two to three cans of enamel spray paint. These supplies should be found locally, as there are many stores that sell them. It would be best to plan your project around the colors you want to use for your DIY sky mural on your ceiling, as it will be difficult, if not impossible, to match different colors up once you have applied them to the ceiling.
Start by spraying a thin layer of enamel spray paint on the stencil you have chosen. If your sky mural stencil calls for an outline, you should begin by spraying a slightly darker color onto the wall to act as the base color. Next, spray a medium color on the wall to act as the medium for the star burst of color that will begin to appear. Continue alternating mediums, always covering the first one in order to allow paint to dry. Once you are satisfied with the result, you may choose to add some stars, moons, or just leave it as it is.
This is an easy DIY project that anyone can do. For a night sky mural, you should start out by painting the sky on the wall. If you wish to do so, there are a couple of things you should keep in mind. If you choose a blue sky as the backdrop for your DIY wall navy, you should use a light blue paint, or a shade of teal.
If you choose to do a night sky mural that uses only the outline of the sky, you may draw constellations onto your construction paper. This may draw constellations like the Milky Way, Sagittarius, and Cassiopeia onto the paper, or it may just be a bunch of circles. The important thing is that you have a nice large selection of constellations available for you to choose from.
Next, you should have your supplies. You will need the construction paper, paint, and some decorative stencils if you wish to do star trails or other designs onto the night sky mural. You can find stencils at art stores or online, depending on how elaborate you make your design. If you don't know how to use stencils, you can also buy construction paper and just use pencils or pens to draw your designs onto it.
When you have everything ready, you can start to paint the sky on your wall. You need to work fast and remember to go slow when you are doing delicate work. The sky is not a fragile piece of art, but a busy piece of wall art, so do not rush through it. If you take your time, your wall can look wonderful as long as you do it right.
Once you're done with your night sky, it is a great place to relax. Many homeowners hang these night murals over their beds, on their kitchen walls, and even in their living rooms. They are not only beautiful, but they add a certain touch of comfort to every room. They also create an interesting focal point, which draws the eye, creating a focus for the rest of the room.
There are also sky wall murals which can be painted directly onto the ceiling of your home. These are very popular and look fantastic. It is easy to create these types of murals as they are really simple to do. What you will need are blue paint, dark sky wallpaper, sky stickers, stars, and clouds. You will want to be careful when you paint the sky as you do not want to have any streaks on the wallpaper.
If you do choose to hang a night sky mural over your ceiling, make sure that you have a friend or relative that can go over the finished product before you put it up. Some people will ask their maids or house wives to do this, but if you are planning on doing it yourself then it would be best to have someone around to help you. You may also want to practice hanging these murals in your bathroom first so you can get used to how it should be hung. Make sure that you take your time and practice the process a few times before you try it on a full scale. This is a great way to incorporate your interest into your home decor, and it makes a relaxing room to come home to every night.
