In today’s economy the life of a muralist is a very difficult profession to make ends meet., especially with the innovation of photographic digital wallpaper mural art. Even though this may be true, muralists are still sought out by home owners and businesses in order to add that boost of life to their walls. Unlike photographic murals the look and texture of a hand painted mural adds that little bit of life to murals and some prefer this look, which is why some muralists have found a happy solution to the problem of making money from their profession. The answer is in digital murals. If you can’t beat ‘em join ‘em.Digital murals offer a faster and more cost effective way for muralists to showcase and sell their work to the masses. For instance, painting an 8ft by 12ft mural could take hours or even days for both customer and artist and end up costing thousands of dollars. Muralists have now embraced the digital mural trend technology to their advantage. Here’s how they do it. Simply by creating a mural on a smaller scale, perhaps 2ft by 4ft, than scanning sections of the image at a high resolution, piecing them together in a photo program and scaling the image up to the size of the wall, where they can than create a file for digital printers to print. All of this sounds pretty complex but thanks to some online companies, getting a mural made for retail has never been easier. Some wallpaper manufacturers offer scanning, scaling and layout services all in one location for custom made wallpaper murals, and some even offer incentives for muralists that wish to purchase their custom jobs in bulk for retail.Not only is this a time and money saver, but it can also yield some great results for the consumer that can buy these murals at a lower cost and can also have the freedom to remove them without feeling bad for destroying an original piece of art. Not only this, but Muralists can than opt to sell their original art or mass produce more versions for other consumers. This seems like a no brain-er alternative for muralists to continue to make a living doing what they love and offering a great competitive alternative to photo murals.
