Mark Each Rectangular Band

Add a small dot of each paint color to its corresponding place in the design to serve as a guide once painting begins.

Protect Walls

Add painter's tape along the top of the wall where it meets the ceiling. This will ensure paint does not drip onto walls while the ceiling is being painted.

Tape Off, Then Paint Every Other Rectangular Band

Add painter's tape to the inside edge of every other rectangular band, then paint inside the taped portion of every other band. For smaller, more narrow bands, apply paint with paintbrush. Use a roller for wider bands. NOTE: This will make the painting process more efficient and ensure straight lines.
