What little fairy princess wouldn’t love having clouds painted on the ceiling of her bedroom? Fortunately, it is quite easy to paint clouds on a ceiling, even if you don’t think you are that artistic or crafty.
First, you will need to make sure the ceiling is flat. Textured ceilings can be done with clouds painted on it, but it will look a little funny. So for best results, ensure the ceiling is a smooth surface.
Next, paint the ceiling with a sky blue ceiling paint. This will be the blue sky background. Depending on what time of day you want to portray on the ceiling, select a sky blue or a darker blue. Allow to dry
Next, select white ceiling paint. This should be a true bright white and not an off-white or cream color, because after all, clouds are white! Pour white paint into a paint tray, then use a paint sponge to create the cloud effects. Dip the sponge in paint, then dab on the ceiling for each cloud. You should use a heavier hand in the middle of each cloud, while lighter on the edges to create a true cloud appearance.
You should ensure that the clouds are different sizes and that the placement is random… you don’t want to have clouds all the same size in a straight line across the ceiling!
Allow to dry, then touch up any mistakes with leftover blue ceiling paint.
