Materials you will need:

  • paint in the colour of your choice (we used Dulux Acrylic PVA)
  • wall roller (for smooth walls)
  • paint tray
  • paintbrushes
  • sheet of paper
  • pencil
  • masking tape
  • ladder

Project Notes

  • Use soft, neutral colours if a brother and sister share the room.
  • Wait until each coat is completely dry (30–60 minutes) before you apply the masking tape for the next step.
  • Remove the masking tape (very carefully!) immediately after each step has been painted.

Step 1

Roughly sketch the position of the mountains on a piece of paper.

Step 2

If the existing wall colour is not suitable as a base coat, first paint the entire wall (we chose Dulux Bleached Lichen 2; it’s a lovely warm shade that doesn’t look too yellow).

Step 3

Using your pencil sketch as a guide, mark out the outlines for the first two mountains with masking tape. Try to keep the lines as straight as possible.

Step 4

Using the first colour (we chose Dulux Dusted Moss 1), paint the mountains. Carefully pull off the masking tape and allow at least 30 minutes for the paint to dry; repeat with the second colour (ours is Dusted Moss 2).

Step 5

Wait at least 30–60 minutes for the paint to dry thoroughly and then mark off the lines for the snow-capped peaks with the masking tape.

Step 6

Paint the white for the snow; remove the masking tape.
