Wall painting was very popular in the past: it adorned the walls of palaces and estates. Now it can be seen less often, but modern technology has allowed her to blend harmoniously into stylish interiors. We suggest you consider the different types of wall paintings, as well as evaluate the most successful examples – some of which we took from House Painting Winnipeg’s Collection. So, according to the technique of applying the image are divided into two types: traditional and modern.
We, Will, Consider the Second – They are More Relevant and are Much More Common.
- Acrylic Painting
- Invisible painting
- Painting with luminous paints
- 3D painting
Acrylic painting is the most popular type of painting on walls in the interior. For such a painting, it is very important to prepare the “canvas” well: the wall should be perfectly even. Acrylic is painted on top of the top layer of plaster, after applying a layer of acrylic primer, so that the pattern holds better.
Many are familiar with airbrushing thanks to painted cars found on the roads. But airbrushing is not necessarily connected with cars; it can also decorate walls in the interior. Airbrushing drawings are performed using a special tool – an airbrush. The lines are smooth, and thanks to the transparency of the layers, you can adjust the color.
Perhaps the most fantastic option from our selection. The painting is applied to the wall with an invisible fluorescent paint, which appears only when the ultraviolet light (UV lamps) is turned on.
Painting with luminous Paints
Luminous paints containing a phosphor differ from invisible ones in that they are most often applied over an acrylic painting so that it does not get lost in the dark. During the day they accumulate light, and then give it out for another six to eight hours after dark. Such paints are rarely used in the
interiors of apartments since few people want the walls to glow at night, but they are very popular in the interiors of bars, bowling alleys, and cafes.
Graffiti is spray-painted in spray cans or special markers. The advantage of this paint is that it dries instantly, lays on almost any surface (from wood to brick), and such a drawing costs much cheaper than painting with acrylic.
3D technology has firmly entered our lives. It’s hard to find someone who has never seen a movie, for which it’s worth putting on 3D glasses. So this mod came to the wall drawings. Such drawings are usually done with acrylic paints and differ from ordinary acrylic paintings only in the approach to writing the paintings themselves.
