superhero intro

Superheroes are confident and brave, and kids grow up thinking they can be just like them. This stage is important in a child's development, and the bright colours and sharp contours of this are perfect for encouraging feelings of confidence and warmth.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s your very own little superhero! Transforming their room into a metropolis ready for them to swoop in and save will help build the confidence and strength of character they’ll need as they grow up – and provide the ultimate space for epic play, of course.

Dulux Endurance+ paints to create this look:

Dulux Endurance+ Matt is an exceptionally tough paint that stands up to the rough and tumble of busy lives.

Its Diamond Tough formulation is 20x tougher than standard Dulux Matt, and washable without the colour fading, so your kids bedroom stays looking great for longer. Find out more >

Follow this easy step-by-step guide to transform their space into a striking city skyline.

Step-by-step guide

Step 1

Start by painting the walls in Striking Cyan.

Step 2

Measure and mark the position of the skyline using coloured chalk, do this by drawing around different shaped empty cardboard boxes to create the building shapes.

Step 3 

Follow the outside of the chalked lines with masking tape and rub the edges down really well.

Step 4

Apply a coat of background colour over the edge of the masking tape (inside the area you’ll be painting black) and allow to dry.

Step 5

Use black paint and a small paint roller to fill in your skyline working from top to bottom. Wait for the black paint to dry and then remove the masking tape.

Step 6

Next, it's time to create the yellow windows. Cut a square or oblong shape out of a potato in whatever size you want the lit windows to be.

Step 7

Brush the face of the potato square with yellow paint and dab it on to your buildings.

Step 8

To create the signal light (and to be Batman, you need a signal light) use a paint tin or anything round to create the shape for the end of the light beam in the sky. Chalk around the shape and draw two pieces of masking tape either side of the circle towards a point on one of the buildings.

Step 9

Fill in the beam with yellow paint and paint the circle with white – you may need two coats.

Step 10

Paint in the initial of your little hero with black paint. To infinity and beyond!
