Night Sky Ceiling Floating In Space Mural Painting

A Decorative Night Sky Ceiling is an exotic decor

addition to any home!

In this article, you will find step-by-step

instructions on creating your own 'Floating in

Space' Night Sky Ceiling Illusion.

Materials Needed:

- Good quality art brush, ,available at most craft stores;

- Invisible-by-day Glow paint, water based

is best as it is safer on the environment and

easier to clean up after;

- old toothbrush;

- rags, for cleaning up;

- drop-cloth / old sheets;

- painter's tape / old ribbon and thumbtacks;

- torchlight;

- step ladder

Room Preparation:

1) Clear the room of as much furniture as possible

2) Cover the floor and any immovable furniture or

paintings etc with a drop-cloth or just any old


Painting Instructions:

1) First use painter's tape, or even a colored

ribbon and some thumbtacks, to tape off the ceiling

into smaller areas. Sort of like painting using a

grid system.

2) Darken the room as much as possible. Keep the

torchlight handy to help you move around in the


3) Expose the glow paint to sunlight or a strong

source of light, like a Compact Flourescent Lamp,

for about 5 minutes. Now when you take the paint

into the darkened room, you will notice how it

glows in the dark!

4) Dip the paint brush in the glow paint and place

random dots on the ceiling covering one grid at at

time. Make sure the dots are of different sizes,

but the largest should definitely not be bigger

than a dime!

5) Once the entire ceiling is done, you can now

move onto the walls. Paint dots of random sizes on

to all the exposed wall surfaces.

Remember you don't have to paint the wall behind

the mirror 'coz you won't see it when you turn the

lights off, right?

The basic idea here is that when the room is dark,

you should be able to see only the glowing dots of

paint on the ceiling and walls of the room.

You can paint dots on the closet doors and other

furniture if you like. This would create a fuller

illusion of being totally 'Lost in Space' floating

around on a space bed!

6) Once the walls are done to your liking, you can

take the step ladder and the dropcloth/ sheets

covering the floor and/or furniture out of the


7) Dilute a small quantity of the glow paint in

equal parts of water. Shake thoroughly to mix

really well.

8) Dip an old toothbrush in this mixture and

sprinkle all over the carpet/floor of your room.

Make sure you don't step on the areas you have

sprinkled with the paint. In my opinion the best

way to do this would be to back out of the room as

you sprinkle.

9) Let the paint air dry for about half an hour.

Just to be absolutely sure.

10) Place all the furniture back into the room.

11) Charge up the paint in the room with a strong

source of light. A Compact Flourescent lamp(CFL)

bulb of about 15 - 20 watts will be perfect.

If you like to use blacklight, please use only the

tube and don't waste time and money on a bulb!

Sunlight is best. So, if it is daytime, you can

open the windows to let in the sunlight. Five

minutes is good enough.

12) Darken the room once again, as much as


Now for the icing on the cake...!

Spray a pine or flower-based air freshner in the


Turn on some soothing music and ...

Voila! You are now officially 'Lost in

Outer Space'.

Your bed will feel like a magic carpet floating

around in space.

Hope you enjoy this Night Sky Ceiling Tutorial as

much as I enjoyed making it.
