In the chaotic and hyperconnected world that we live in, nothing gives us a deeper sense of purpose and peace than simply looking at a starlit sky. As humans, we tend to feel a lingering pull toward things that are magical, sparkly and wondrous. But if you happen to live in a polluted city, star gazing might seem like a distant dream!

How you can bring home the celestial skies using Berger iPaint DIY Glow in Dark Paint Kit
Once you get your hands on the kit, it is super easy to recreate a starry night look for your home walls and/or ceiling. Simply follow these seven easy steps for DIY wall painting:
Step 1: Decide on a wall and ceiling, it could be your favourite corner in the house, the ceiling above your bed or the playroom.
Step 2: Peel the galaxy stencil and affix it on your chosen surface. Avoid applying too much pressure on the stencil so it is easy to remove later!
Step 3: Now begins the fun part! Pour a small amount of paint on the tray and dip your roller in it. Do not dilute the paint.
Step 4: Start painting your stencil by moving the roller in a downward and upward motion. Maintain a single direction of paint for an even and clean look. Let it dry for about 15 minutes.
Step 5: Once the paint has completely dried, repeat step 4 for a second coat.
Step 6: Right away, carefully remove the stencil. If you notice any spreading of paint, use the spotter to clean up the edges. Let the second coat dry for about 15 minutes.
Step 7: Repeat the steps using the stencil to create your own unique galaxy for your favourite corner in the house. Let the stencil absorb light for a couple of hours, turn off the lights and enjoy an awe-inspiring display of stars and galaxies!
There you have it! You can now experience the appeal and beauty of the night sky without stepping out of your door. Fire up your imagination and create a unique celestial display for your home. Don’t forget to tag us in your own DIY Berger iPaint projects on Instagram at @BergerPaintsIndia.
