Sydenham Adventure Playground

Over the course of 4 days spread over three weeks Aero gave up his free time to paint this enchanted themed mural  at HomePark Aadventure Playground.

The buildings entrance was looking in a bad way with flaking paint and visible repairs on show, with the space in need of colour and life to make the entrance more welcoming for it’s young users.

Preparation work began the start of April removing old paint making brickwork and wood areas sound and ready for a base colour to be applied marked out the design worked on the background trees and shutter and finally painted the mushrooms and animals.
