How to paint cloud shapes
Making Cloud Shapes
Depending on the layout of the room you can build clouds on an accent wall, above a chair rail, the ceiling or all over the room.
Painted clouds will create a whole new energy to the room making a wonderful back drop to all of the other choices you bring in.

If you have a sailboat theme, create clouds shaped like sailboats it is easier than you would think.

Where do I get the shapes?
You can either make your own stencil inspired from from a picture, bedding, rug or fabric that you have in your child's room or take a look at some ready made stencils which can save you some work.
The simpler the shape the better. Look at how successful a simple little duck on the right can be.

How do I do it?
You need to click here to read and follow the guide on how to paint clouds.

  1. Make or buy your chosen stencil shape.
  2. Position your stencil and paint a cloud as (described in the guide) within the shape of the stencil.
  3. Make the paint quite tranparent fading it out towards the edge of the stencil so that you do not get too hard an edge.
  4. Remove the stencil and paint the other clouds as normal.

Wall mural idea
For a bolder effect, how about painting a kite or a bunch of balloons in bright colours over the clouds?

Sticker idea
For an even easier option, stick on some stickers like these ones on the right.


Good luck, and if you paint room of clouds, please send me photos of it so I can include them in the website.

TIPS

Keep some extra sky blue paint to touch up clouds that are too big or paint over ones you don't want.

You can use white gloss paint for the clouds, but you need to use a glaze designed for gloss paints.


Easy to use Cloud Painting Kit from Magic-Mural-Factory
Each Cloudwash kit has everything you need included to paint clouds on your walls.
Including the Blue Colorwash for the background, The Cloudy White Paint for the clouds, a step by step video and all the cloths, gloves and patterns you need. All you need is a plain white wall and the inspiration to change it.


Here are some ideas for shapes that I think would work well.
Right click on the image, and copy it to your computer where you can enlarge it and print it out. Use a photocopier to enlarge it again to your size required. Trace it onto stencil paper and cut out the shape ready to make a cloud mural.
You can find shapes like these in typeface lists on your computer, clip art,
stencil suppliers and copyright free books like the Dover selection.
