Painting on cement
Hi all. I have an idea of what I want to do, but have no talent in painting. My thing is working with wood. This is what I want to do and any help anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated. I have a covered patio at the back of my garage. It is open on 3 sides, with a roof as I said, and the 4th wall, which is the back of my garage is aluminum sided about 3/4's of the way down from the top and the bottom 2 feet or so is my cement foundation. After 40+ years it looks kinda grungy, so I am painting the foundation tomorrow in the very palest shade of green, and then I am going to attempt painting a faux wildflower garden/border on the cement. Here's where I need your help. What type of paints should I use, what type of brushes and/or techniques should I try? I'm painting on a very rough cement wall so nothing will be very detailed. More like sponging flowers, scruffing (?) grasses and leaves. I'm in your hands because I have NO idea where to start, I just know what effect I hope to get to spruce up this patio area. Thanks so much for any suggestions.
