At some point, all of us have gazed up at a night sky to see a dazzling display of planets and stars. Typically, the bodies appear close enough to touch. Then, the next night the bodies have disappeared. If you love the night sky and would like to see it whenever you want, consider painting a galaxy on your ceiling.
Your ceiling of stars can be very tranquil as well as a fantastic asset. With the use of some fundamental tools and special glow paint, you can create a genuine-looking galactic ceiling that has shooting stars and planets.
What You Need
Examine a photograph and plan a layout on your mural. If you want a galaxy that truly showcases the planets, galaxies, moon, and constellation maps, buy a stencil kit.
Here is a list of the things you’ll need to get started:
To make your painting a galaxy even more accurate, use stencils to make horizon lines, which may include shapes of trees, mountains, and buildings.
Ceiling and Room Preparation
This job will be messy. Therefore, proper preparation of the room will help with your clean-up are you’re done. Begin by moving portable objects and small furniture items out of the room. Relocate bigger pieces away from the space where you’ll be working.
Cover the items with a heavy drop cloth to shield them from paint. If you have a ceiling fixture, cover it with plastic, securing it with painter’s tape. Also, put tape over the light fixture switch so you won’t accidentally turn the light on during the project.
Tips for Creating Your Ceiling Galaxy
Be sure that the work area has enough ventilation before you begin. Keep in mind that you don’t want to paint your galaxy on a dark hue. Though unseen during the day, the phosphorescent paint displays better on a light shade of paint. Apply a dark background only if you desire visibility during the daytime.
The sky’s the limit with this exciting project. If you need assistance with any home painting project, arrange a consultation with a painting expert.
