  • 1 Before you begin, ensure the wall is clean and free from any chips. Any damaged areas should be repaired by using filler and lightly sanded to ensure a smooth surface. Paint the wall in your chosen base colour.
  • 2 Leave to dry as long as the instructions state on the tin and then lightly sand with fine sand paper.
  • 3 Measure out your first shape using a measuring tape and lightly mark using pencil the corners of your design.
  • 4 You can use a chalk snap to create perfectly straight lines. Pick a starting point and pin the beginning of the chalk wire to that point. Keep the wire tense and pin the end of the wire to the point you previously measured. Pull the wire back and release. Note: The chalk mark can be easily removed if you decide to change the size of your shape.
  • 5 Repeat this process until you have marked out your complete design.
  • 6 Use Frogtape to create the outlines of your first shape. Frogtape prevents the paint from seeping through so you are left with a clean outline.
  • 7 Paint the first shape in your chosen colour. Apply as many coats as required and leave to dry as long as the instructions on the tin indicate.
  • 8 Once dry remove tape carefully and you should be left with a clean outline.
  • 9 Repeat the process for the other shapes. Note: When cutting in at a ceiling, it is best to use a thin paint brush. Using a steady hand, create the outline.
  • 10 As you complete each shape you will begin to see your design develop. Continue until you have completed all shapes.
