Before we paint or install murals, we request that you prep your walls. This often requires painting a new base coat of paint on to your walls. It is important at this stage to make sure the walls contain no tape, nails, staples, holes, adhesive, oils, etc. Neglecting to remove these things can cause delays in the process and may end up creating a less than ideal end product.
This video shows how to paint a good base coat as well as demonstrating some other helpful painting hints. You may want to consider hiring a professional house painter to paint your base coat If you can add that to your budget. The main goal is to end up with a smooth surface, free of obstacles and debris. That will help ensure the mural applied to the top of it will be as perfect as possible!
