Background paint color(s)
Pencils with erasers
Paint for characters - we used sample cans for all of these colors
Black paint for outlining characters
Loads and Loads of patience
First we painted the background, we decided to go with a sky and grass look like in The Lorax.
After your walls are dry, the tedious task of tracing out the characters comes next. Since we used a trace projector (that my father-in-law already owned), we could project straight from the books and didn't have to make copies or transparencies. The downside of the trace projector is that you have to do some interesting maneuvering to get your images exactly where you want them.
|Thing 1 was the first on the wall, we were both very excited when he was completely outlined!|
so worth it!
We both love her room!
