Re: Painted mural in childs room ?

I did a Dr. Seuss mural for my son's room before he was born. My wife borrowed an overhead projector from her school and I made transparencies of the images i wanted to use. I then projected the images on the walls and painted them in. For most images (that needed a strong outline), I outlined in marker, and then painted them in. Oh, and I did the base colors first, obviously. Here's some pics of how some of it came out (note that these were taken before he was born 3+ years ago):

As for paint, I used a no-VOC base in the green and blue and then (i think) acrylic paints from the craft store for the mural images. Priming and painting over it when we sell will be a challenge, but it's been worth it.
