You Choose: A Mural Painted
Straight Onto Your Wall or Painted onto Canvas
I can paint your mural straight onto your wall, or alternatively
I can paint the mural onto canvas for fixing onto your wall
The advantages of painting murals on canvas are:
- travel and accomodation costs are kept low;
- I don't need daily access to your premises while painting the
mural on canvas;
- Wall preparation is not quite so critical: minor surface imperfections
are hidden by the canvas; and
- if you use the right method of fixing (a batten frame or peelable
wallpaper glue) you can take the canvas mural off the wall and
put it in a different location (perhaps when you move).
Gluing the canvas to the wall is very similar
to wallpapering, and so you could tackle it yourself or get a local
painter and decorator to do it for you.
I use a polyester canvas specifically intended
for wall murals; it does not stretch or sag and is impervious
to damp, and so is very long-lasting. I also use high quality acrylic
paints for murals that do not crack or peel during handling.
The canvas is available in widths
of up to 10'6" (3.2m) and so is suitable for almost any
me for more information on murals painted on either walls or canvas.
