… is all that matters here!

Mural – sneak preview 2

Well, painting straight lines and lettering on bessa block (breeze block for UK readers) makes the job a tad longer.  Also using prime colours (high quality outdoor house paint) means there’s a higher proportion of colour and makes the paint a bit see-through, so I have to do two coats.

So, the mural isn’t finished yet.

However, I’ve had some lovely feedback from teachers and parents – and lots of interest from curious students, which makes it all worthwhile!

Here’s today’s finished stage.

As you can see, I’ve finished the little Apps at the bottom and have completed the two top sections.  All I have to do now is fill in the bottom two sections and add some highlight/shading  remove the masking tape. Once the masking tape is removed, it should look fine.

I’m wondering though, to any readers who are painters – do you think it’s quicker, more efficient and more esthetic to use masking tape, or do you prefer to paint straight lines by hand?
