Step-by-step guide

Step 1

Firstly, refresh the walls with a soft tone such as Blue Babe.


Step 2

Mark out the cloud shapes using a pencil or chalk.


Step 3

Choose Jasmine White to fill in the clouds, an emulsion brush is ideal for this and as you’re painting clouds, neat edges aren’t so important.


Step 4

Find two large and strong elastic bands to create paint stippling pads.


Step 5

Soften the clouds and make them look more realistic using a sponge pad dipped in the white paint.


Step 6

Create shadows on the clouds by sponging on some paint in Polished Pebble or Goose Down. These colours add depth and interest to the design.
