How to Get Started in Murals article I’m trying to figure out how to start a mural, and I’ve stumbled across a post on reddit where someone asked a question that really struck a chord with me.
“What’s the best way to start?”, the poster asked.
“If you’re doing a school mural, how do you know which wall is best for it?”
The poster then shared an example of a wall that was a perfect match for the mural she was trying to create.
I thought, “Okay, let’s try that.
We’ll get to the basics.”
So I got out my phone and went to Google and found a few examples of the best murals.
I then found a simple way to use a simple program called Photoshop.
I started with a photo of a schoolhouse.
After I clicked on the image, I hit the “Create New Image” button.
I chose the wall that I wanted to use and hit “Create”.
It took me about 10 seconds to create a new image.
I could save my photo, share it on Facebook, or send it to a friend or family member.
I was very happy with the result.
I liked that the wall was an easy match for my mural, because I could just pick a color and stick with it.
Now I needed to find a wall to use for my school mural.
I started with one wall that matched the colors of the other two.
For this example, I chose a dark red wall.
I also chose a white wall.
The next step was to make a gradient using the “Apply” button on the layer menu.
This button was on the left side of the layer palette.
If you didn’t see it, you should have seen it in the screenshot below.
When you click on “Apply”, you’ll get a gradient effect that looks something like this:I was very pleased with the results.
I felt I could have chosen the darker wall, but I’m not sure I could, because it doesn’t really match the colors I chose.
Now I need to choose a darker color for the other wall.
The next step is to apply a mask to the image.
To apply the mask, I just need to click on the gradient layer, then select “Apply Mask”.
After that, I’ll need to adjust the size of the gradient to match the color of the image on the screen.
This is what I got:The next thing I did was to change the size.
The size of my gradient was 4px, so I could make it larger, but it would have made it harder to draw on the other walls.
The only way I could get it smaller would be to go back to the layers palette and change the opacity of the mask.
I didn’t want that, so to avoid it, I decided to leave it as is.
After adjusting the size, I used the gradient in the “New Layer” tool.
Here I’m using the mask and the gradient as my guide.
The mask is the corner of the photo, while the gradient is the middle of the color.
The result was this:The first step is the hardest part, because you need to draw a line around the image to make sure it’s correct.
I did that with a line I made with the mask on the photo.
I added a black line to the bottom of the picture.
I drew a small line through the middle, which was just a little more than 1/8th of an inch wide, to make it a little easier to draw.
I used that line to create the mask:Next up, I needed a mask for the next wall.
That’s easier, because the first layer is black, so you can just go ahead and paint the image with a black mask.
The final mask is just a layer mask that covers the entire photo.
Here is what it looks like after I added the mask to my image:You can also use a brush or pencil to paint the mask over the entire image.
You can then use a white paintbrush to apply the gradient mask.
After you’ve added the gradient and mask, you can click on your image to see how it looks.
I made sure to draw my line over the top of the schoolhouse, because my first layer was a white gradient.
I wanted the school building to be in the background, so it was important that the school house is in the center of the background.
Here are some examples of what my gradient looked like on the school:Next, I applied the gradient on the next image, so that the image would be black and white instead of a black and grey gradient.
Here’s what it looked like after applying the gradient:Next was to add a mask that would cover the school.
I went with a white mask, so the school was in the middle and I wanted it to be dark enough to blend in with the school background.
I painted over the
