Mural Planning with a Checklist
In general, before starting the mural it is important to know the size of the mural, the condition of wall you will be painting on to and also the location, eg in a busy public street or some dark back alley.
Simple reasons being is for the amount of paint you will need, the wall preparation before starting to paint and then what type of traffic/pedestrian control you will need to put in place while painting the mural.
