What was used to draw it? You could either glaze the wall and line in, or drastically 2x2 the wall and sheet it with gyproc, Kind of like a partition wall.

why not just lining paper and paint it? then, when you want it back you just need to strip the paper. provided you are careful when stripping and use a fairly weak mix of wallpaper paste you should have no problem.

when we moved into our house we stripped the walls in one bedroom to find a humpty dumpty mural (done badly) beneath. we covered it up again but the wallpaper came away leaving the mural completely intact. still there now though it's never likely to see the light of day again!

It would all depend on what kind of paint he used tho. if the Murial was oil based and had a clear coat then possibly but i doubt it would be perfect when stripping 10year down the line.

I'd imagine that acrylic paints were used as it's a mural. Would seem the most sensible choice to me. In which case it should be fine.

Though as you say it does entirely depend on the type of paint used.

Regardless I think that lining paper is really the only way to cover it so that it may be exposed again at some point in the future.
