What You'll Need:
You will need a few essential items to create a galaxy bedroom ceiling:
- Black paint
- Glow in the dark paint
- A paint roller.
- Cloth or plastic sheeting
- Paintbrushes or sponges
- Tape or masking paper
- Glow in the dark stars of various sizes
Paint Selection: Choosing the Right Paint & Colors to Create a Galaxy Effect
The galaxy effect can be achieved by combining dark and light colors. You will want to use black paint as the base color and then use lighter hues such as blue, purple, pink, green, or yellow for painting small stars and galaxy-like effects.
Glow in the dark paint can be found online or at most craft stores. You can use any brand of glow in the dark paint that you prefer, but follow the manufacturer's instructions for application.
Preparation: Preparing the Room and Ceiling for Painting
Before you begin, make sure to prep the room and ceiling. Start by removing any furniture or other items from the room that will be in the way of your galaxy masterpiece.
Next, cover the floor with a drop cloth or plastic sheeting to protect it from paint spills. Then, use masking tape or paper to cover any trim or baseboards you don't want to be painted (such as light fixtures or vents).
Finally, use a damp cloth to wipe down the ceiling and clean off any dust or dirt before you start painting.
Painting the Galaxy Ceiling
Once your room and ceiling are prepped, you can start painting the galaxy effect. Begin by painting a blobby shape with the lightest color of paint and spraying it with water to blend. Next, add the medium color around the edges and blend as you go before adding the dark color and blending again.
Finally, use an art brush to flick lighter colored dots onto the walls for stars. This will create a mesmerizing galaxy effect in your bedroom!
Once you've finished painting, allow the ceiling to dry overnight before adding the glow in the dark paint. Add small dots of glow in the dark paint around the edges of each star and blend them together with a damp cloth.
Finally, finish off the galaxy effect by adding glow in the dark stars of various sizes. Use a bit of tape or adhesive on the back of each star and place them around the ceiling for an amazing, glowing effect!
Painting Technique: Tips and Tricks to Achieve a Beautiful Starry Sky
- For the base layer it's recommended to use a roller and paint the entire ceiling with the base color. This will ensure an even coverage.
- Go online and search for photos of galaxies to get a better idea of how you want your galaxy bedroom ceiling to look. Use the photo as a reference when painting and try to replicate the colors and shapes seen in the image.
- To achieve the perfect galaxy glow in the dark bedroom ceiling, remember to layer your colors with lighter hues instead of darker ones.
Adding Finishing Touches
If you want to add some extra sparkle and shine, you can use glitter paint or sequins. These great accents will take your galaxy bedroom ceiling to the next level!
The galaxy glow in the dark bedroom of your dreams is just a few simple steps away. With the right supplies and a bit of creativity, you can create an amazing galaxy bedroom ceiling that will be the envy of all your friends. Good luck and happy painting!
