Why not make your murals interactive? This will provide your youngsters with more opportunities for learning and pleasure.
Paint for Blackboards
You can create your very own chalkboard with this fantastic paint, which can be applied using a brush or sprayed on. Simply spray the chalkboard paint onto the wall, keeping in mind to place it lower down so that younger children can access it, allow it to dry in between coats, and voila! You only need the chalk.
This fantastic paint is a primer made of acrylic latex and water that can convert any wall into a magnetically sensitive surface. Apply the undercoat colour primer, and then apply your own top coat using whatever latex or enamel colour you desire. Amazing, no more blue tack or pin marks, and best of all, the majority of them do not contain lead, thus they are safe for children to use.
Your youngsters will be able to touch and explore the surfaces of your murals if you create them in a two-dimensional format. For instance, you might paint a pig, and after the paint is dry, you could cover the pig’s stomach with pink felt. In this manner, your children will get used to a wide variety of surface textures. You might also use artificial fur to create the manes of animals such as lions, bears, and zebras.
If you’re going for an underwater vibe, you may want to consider utilising two-tone plastic sheets to draw attention to certain parts of the sea or the fishes themselves.
Murals that Glow in the Dark
Why not experiment with making your paintings glow in the dark or bright by using special paints? If the theme of your mural is outer space, you may paint the planets and stars using luminescent paints, which will continue to shine after the lights have been turned out.
If you are painting, for example, angels or fairies, you may want to consider adding a little of glitter to their wings or wands. Or, if you are planning on painting a mural with an aquatic theme, you may sprinkle glitter on the seahorses and fish so that when the light hits the mural, it would truly dazzle.
Murals That Alter Their Colors
Consider using paint with a heat sensor. When it is contacted by heat, such as when a hand is put on it, a new kind of paint has been developed that is specifically formulated to change colour. There are three different colours: chameleon, mauve, and azure (blue) (green). Why not use these colours to create a scenario that takes place underwater or on a tropical island? You could choose to use the paint that comes in vast swaths of colour, such as azure for the ocean, and regular acrylic paint for the other mural colours and paint in your mural.
Now, anytime your toddler plays with the mural, certain parts of it will, as if by magic, transform into a new colour.
