Scotty you're a lifesaver! Thanks for the in-depth response, really appreciate it!
You brought up a pretty good point, I don't think I'll get a lot of range for the projector so it may not work out, unless I do it in portions... Grid method is always there as a backup.
Handy tip using card for the crisp edge deal!! And thanks for the taping tip!!
I'll come back if I have any more questions haha

Thanks for the feedback guys!
Yes of course I can draw haha, just never at a scale this big. I recalled Richard Branson saying something along the lines of "If someone asks you to do something you aren't sure how to, say yes and learn how to do it later" hahaha, which is what pushed me to go for it.
I've tried spray painting once and it was a little tricky, friends in the graf community were saying it's easier as you can cover a greater area in shorter time, but I agree that it would just be a headache for a novice like me. Paint it is!!
To answer your question, the wall is indoors, painted and rendered.
I was originally thinking bout the grid method, considering I've never drawn large-scale I could imagine proportions getting out of whack if I went freehand. I never considered projector method but that would be a super easy way to do it!! Anyone know how I would go about that (Kinda feels like cheating tho, no)?

I've dug myself in, put my hand up for the chance to paint a mural, but I've never done one before!! The wall is a doozy, at 12 x 4 m... Just wondering the best way to tackle this? Any tips, pointers or advise would be much appreciated haha!
My main questions are:
* Paint, or Spray can? (And if paint, acrylic?) The piece has to remain up for 12 months, so whichever would last this amount of time as well as being time/cost-effective.
* For anyone that does murals on the reg, what kind of process do you find works best? (eg. stencil it up > tape > colour-code > bang it out)?
* Taping... once you've painted up one layer is it safe to tape over it to do a different area? (I'm thinking this is the best way I could do this, but afraid taping over a previously painted area will wreck havoc!)
Thanks guys, appreciate the help in advance!! And sorry if these are super silly Qs haha.
