Project notes 

• Use soft, neutral colours if a brother and sister share the room. 

• Wait until each coat is completely dry (30–60 minutes) before you apply the masking tape for the next step. 

• Remove the masking tape (very carefully!) immediately after each step has been painted.

Here’s how to DIY...

STEP 1 - Sketching your mountains 

Roughly sketch the position of the mountains on a piece of paper. 

STEP 2 - Prepping your wall

If the existing wall colour is not suitable as a base coat, first paint the entire wall (we chose Dulux Bleached Lichen 2; it’s a lovely warm shade that doesn’t look  too yellow). 

STEP 3 - Outlining your mountains 

Using your pencil sketch as a guide, mark out the outlines for the first two mountains with masking tape. Try to keep the lines as straight as possible. 

STEP 4 - Painting the mountain

Using the first colour (we chose Dulux Dusted Moss 1), paint the mountains. Carefully pull off the masking tape and allow at least  30 minutes for the paint to dry; repeat with the second colour  (ours is Dusted Moss 2). 

STEP 5 - Outlining the peaks

Wait at least 30–60 minutes for the paint to dry thoroughly and then mark off the lines for the snow-capped peaks with the masking tape. 

STEP 6 - Painting the snow

Paint the white for the snow; remove the masking tape.
