IAN LOVEALL: Hi! I’m Ian Loveall with Expert
Village and we’re looking at painting or specifically mural painting. And right now, we’re looking
at some of the basic materials that you can use. Miscellaneous things that you find around
the house can be great for painting. You never know what is going to suit your needs. Here’s
a sort of a dust mop thing that I found is great for creating different textures. You
can dab it, drag it, slap it against the wall and create splatter effects. It’s–it’s really
useful. You can use crumpled up pieces of paper, you know. Again, you can dab them,
unfold them to create sort of a parchment look on the wall. Get creative. Whatever you’ve
got lying around, try painting with it, I think you’ll be surprised. Plastic wrap, great
tool, one of my favorite tools for painting water, if you just sort of stretch it out
and press it against the wall, pull it away and you’ll get a really nice ripple effect.
Plastic wrap who knew. Tin foil is great. Feathers are a favorite with many artists.
So, just look around your pantry or your garage see what you’ve got and have fun.
