How to paint clouds on a wall;

After the wall has been painted light blue and dried fully I am painting white fluffy clouds periodically on and around corners to full the eye into a 3-D effect and getting rid of the corners. The clouds are achieved using a large synthetic round bristle brush and acrilic paint. I'm applying bumpy circular motions on top and blending here and there focusing on blending more towards the bottom, and giving the bottom of the cloud a straight edge but still blended look. The goal is to have long horizontal clouds of varying lengths. This will give depths in the painting, especially when overlapping clouds. Clouds far away will appear to be skinnier and clouds close to you will appear to be longer vertically in nature.
