I hope someone can advise?
We are painting a mural on our kitchen wall, and I was wondering which paints and brushes to use.
I am buying what is required for my wife who will be doing the mural (she is very artistic, but mostly pencil, no real experience with paints), and a bit out of practice.
I will be projecting the image on to the wall (wall painted in light green/grey matt emulsion), and I will be drawing the outline, my wife will then go in and paint.

Total image size will be approx. 1.5m2, so not massive with a fair amount of negative space. This is also the only mural we will likely be doing, so not looking to invest in expensive materials.
Looking at a few articles, I have ordered some Liquitex Soft Body Acrylic Mars Black, and will be buying some Cadmium orange.
I am not sure what the best brushes will be best to use (material, shape and size), to get an even streak-free finish (are the paints I have ordered even suitable (I can cancel if needed)).
Am I over thinking the materials I will need for this project (is acrylic the correct paint type?), should I be looking at more basic materials - it obviously needs to look good, but I don't want to overspend on materials if I can get an almost identical result with something more basic.
Any advice appreciated, thank you!
