Another option is to sketch the basic tree outline with chalk, then fill it in with paint.
Should you wash walls before painting?
Washing your walls and trim is a good idea to remove any grime, cobwebs, dust or stains that may prevent your paint from adhering. Just use a mixture of lukewarm water and mild soap to wash your walls, gently rubbing in a circular motion. And be sure to rinse using a slightly damp cellulose sponge.
How do you prepare a wall before painting?
When painting a bathroom or kitchen, wash the walls with a solution of approximately three teaspoons of laundry detergent to one gallon of water. Scrape any cracked or flaking paint with a paint scraper. For other small imperfections on the wall such as plaster bumps, smooth them away with sandpaper.
Do I need to prime walls before painting?
If you’re painting drywall that’s never been painted before, prime it first. If you’re changing the color of your wall from very dark to very light, priming it first will make it easier to cover with the lighter color and could save you from applying a second or even third coat of paint.
