Make: Graphic Canvas Painting (using tape!)

Friday, August 31, 2012


This is a no painting skills required DIY painting. Which is good for those, like me, who love to paint but have little fine art skills. Also for those, like me, who love art but has a limited budget. I DO love to buy art from Etsy though. As an Etsy seller I am on there a lot. a lot. I also love to support fellow Etsy artisans and I do, the last several things I have bought through etsy have all been pieces of art. You can see one of the pieces I purchased in the last picture! But as stated, I can't always afford to do that every time I see a bare spot in need of a little art. This DIY is a great way to add some color and art to your walls. It's so simple, if you tire of it later you won't feel torn about passing it on to a new home. PS this is also a great art project for the the little ones!

TAPE
(make sure tape is securely down so not paint leaks through!)

PAINT & LET DRY OVER NIGHT 

REMOVE TAPE
(use a fine brush to make any touch ups you might need to make)

    1. I used acrylic paints for artists. But just an inexpensive brand. You could use acrylic craft paint too!
