Step 1: Tape It Like You Mean It!

This is the only step you have to do before painting:

Tape the canvas with lines that cross each other and make shapes, leaving blank spots where you can paint.

Then, just paint the gaps with the colors you want. You can also create textures by adding different brush strokes.

If you have kids, or feel like getting your hands dirty, use your fingers, put your handmark on it, be creative!

After this, you only have to let the paint dry overnight, remove the tape, and you are ready to go!
