Introduction: Morphing Canvas
Add color on your wall!
- 1m x 1m canvas (you can make it smaller... or bigger)
- sheets of paper
- 1m30 x 1m30 cotton fabric (black to brighten the colors)
Step 1: The Background
Staple your fabric onto the canvas (remember to staple on the back of the canvas if you don’t want to see the staples on the sides…)
Step 2: The Tiles
I printed them on Canson paper for its good resistance to glue.
I used Illustrator for the morphing and Photoshop to choose the gradient of each color.
All my forms are ready, there are 100 …
Step 3: The Sticking
The trouble with geometric forms is that it’s ugly when it’s not straight.
So I took the laser level, which has the good idea to have a horizontal line and a vertical line.
If you don’t have this tool, put a pin every 10 cm around the frame.
Use a thread to connect them 2 by 2 and you get a regular grid.
Step 4: Backstage
Some hazardous constructions to have my laser level at the correct height (it’s the little box at the top of the pile…)
My failures : I wanted to make the gradient with paint, but except the primary colors, impossible to get nice secondary colors (due to non really miscible paints).
