MURAL PAINTING - PRACTICAL INFO

Posted: 8th May 2012

Issues

While creating outdoor murals, some of the issues that need to be considered...

  • UV Rays - fading of paints outdoors
  • Under-painting to combat some of this fading?
  • Protection from weather
  • Varnishes - fully clear varnish, with no colour added
