I was wondering if you could help me solve a problem or at least point me to someone else that could.
I hand painted a wall mural on my grandson's wall 2 years ago. It's approximately 6 ft wide and 4 ft tall. I painted it directly over the wall paint with latex wall paint and some acrylic for details. At the time they were planning on living in the house for a long time and now they are moving. We are trying to figure out how to remove the mural intact and put it on another backing so they can take it with them. It is not feasible to take the wall itself. Do you have any ideas about how we can make that transfer? Or do you know anyone who would know?
My first thought was to put some kind of clear medium on the paint surface and bind something to the medium that could be removed from the face once it was glued on a canvas backing after it was removed. I have no idea what to use that would be strong enough to pull the mural part off the wall or that wouldn't stick to the surface after it was transferred to the canvas backing.
If you have any ideas, I would welcome them.
