Painting Monkeys On The Wall - a cute design idea for a child's room.

If you're looking for a cute design idea for a child's room, you should think about painting a monkey on the wall. This is an even better idea if your child likes animals, or if you're thinking about designing his or her room with a rainforest motif.  Murals can work in any room.

Getting Started

The first thing you should do, if you're thinking about painting a monkey on a wall, is to decide what type of monkey you're going to paint and what colors will dominate. Once you've decided which colors the monkey will be (and any other designs that you'll be painting on the wall), then you can make a decision about the background color.

You should pick a background coat of paint that will either highlight certain parts of the monkey design that you are going to paint on the wall, or that will contrast with it so that the monkey design will stand out.

Simplistic Design

For a simplistic monkey design, your best bet is to go with the contrasting paint hues. That way you'll be able to clearly see the design that you have painted on the wall. Before you begin painting, you should look online for pictures of monkeys. If you find one that is simplistic enough for your design then you can either use it as reference while you paint on the wall - or print it out to make a sponge stamp.

Realistic Design

If you are going to paint a photo realistic (or close to it) monkey on the wall, then you should make sure that the background coat of paint will help to highlight the important parts of your design. In this case, you should also look for several different pictures of monkeys before you begin to paint. That way, you'll have a good idea of what your subject looks like before you begin.

If you do not have much time for the painting process, then you should consider making the sponge stamp.
