Hey everyone! For this post, I thought I would show to make easy geometric art that will spice up any area!
Supplies you’ll need:
- A piece or cardboard or paper – any size, I used cardboard and mine was about 8 by 5 inches.
- Some paints – I used acrylic.
- Paint brushes.
- Painter’s tape to mark off areas.
Let’s start by getting our piece of cardboard and prepping it – cut it to size, but if your’s is already ready, you can move on to the next step.
Next, get your painter’s tape and start marking off shapes. Essentially, the tape will create sections, and in between, it will be the original color.
Then, grab all of your supplies so that we can start with the fun, painting!
Paint in all of your sections, and don’t worry about staying inside of the tape, as long as you don’t go into the next section, you should be fine. When it comes to colors, you can go for a theme, or like I did, do pastel rainbow or rainbow or just go crazy with the colors – how ever you like it!
You want to wait at least 5-10 mins for the paint to dry. For me, it took about 5-6 minutes, but it really just depends on the paint. Now, you can start peeling of your tape.
Continue peeling until there is no more tape. It should look something like this. You can finish here if you want. But, you might have noticed on mine, and maybe even your’s, that the paint bled through. That can happen depending on the paint.
There are a few ways to fix that. One way is to take a color similar to the color of the paper/cardboard that you were using and then paint over those edges to make them crisp. Or, you could take small strips of paper and line the parts without colors to even out the edges. Or, you could do what I did; I took sharpies similar to the colors and outlined the shapes. You could use black if you wanted. And that is the final result!
What do you think of this result? Feel free to comment down below how your’s turned out if you followed this. If you like this post, give it a like and subscribe to my blog! Until next time, bye!
