After a couple days the project really started to take off. I used paint markers to get solid crisp edges. The acrylics used needed a minimum of 2 coats so I could only make so much progress before painting the whole thing over again. The white wasn't opaque enough so instead, I painted with primmer. Primmer is designed to be super opaque and to give a flat bright white. After 4 coats of primmer, the white was enough to stand out and really pop off the wall.
