Solar System Mural

This mural was painted for a 6-year-old boy who was fascinated with space and the solar system. The inspiration image was a printed carpet that had a clear photo style image of the solar system. With the wall painted blue in advance, we painted planets in a realistic style. Silver stars were added with paint pen and a shimmery nebula swirls in the bottom corner with special interference paint that is reflective. Across from the mural is a realistic moon lamp that hangs on the wall and we added a few constellations of stars to unite the room. As we were painting the image the client’s son joined us to paint his own scene on paper using some extra acrylic paint from our kit. He also added silver stars and shooting stars to the final work of art.
