Fellow Artists,

I am very keen to try my hand out at drawing on a wall using permanent markers &  acrylics. But having had no experience I want to make sure I don't end up using the wrong stuff. 

If you have any info or experience about wall murals please let me know!

Thank You,

Sanjana Nanda

I've done several wall murals and I usually use acrylics but....I'm not a trained artist either. I just washed the area and then painted on it. They lasted fine. I also did one with spray paint and acrylics. You have to be really careful with spray paint though. 

Thank you! Also do you know of any varnish I can spray or paint on after i'm done? So it can last as long as possible
