DIY: Painting World Map On The Wall

By | On + -

We have a marvelous “DIY world map” from Ronda, shown us how to paint a giant map on a wall. Its very cool and neat and it would look great in your home. Let’s have a look at this great idea.

This is the finished product:

World map: the finished product
 
So what we need to create this map:

  • A projector + a world image
  • Painting tools (brush + color)
  • Sponge for texture

You see, it is too easy. Large maps are expensive… maybe this map will rescue you πŸ˜€ . So how to do it?

First thing match the colors to bed-sheets. Get 2 colors. Base that matches everything and then one shade darker:

Projector to paint  Prep the wall by painting a fresh coat. Just for awesomeness.

Trace out the outline of the still image with a fine brush

outline for images  Fill in the inside with a larger brush

filled color

Here is a shot of it mid way through

half of the work done  Here is just with the base coat.

Then use a texture sponge to add the mountain ranges.

It looks really good at night.
