## Step 1: Section Off Your Canvas Using Tape

• Take your canvas and begin placing tape onto it
• Once your piece of tape is in the desired spot cut tape to size of canvas using a scissors
• Continue this process of placing tape to create geometric shapes on your canvas

TIP: If you cannot find painters tape masking tape will work as well

## Step 2: Painting Your Canvas

• Take your acrylic paints of choice and squeeze small amounts of each color onto a paper plate
• Begin painting your canvas with paint brushes, staying inside the lines of your tape
• Paint each empty section until they are all filled in

Each section can be painted a different or the same color depending on your preference. If paint gets onto the tape there is nothing to worry about as the tape will be removed later on.

TIP: before you begin painting, place newspaper underneath your canvas to protect the surface you are painting on

## Step 3: Removing the Tape From Your Canvas

• Once the paint is completely dry you can begin removing the tape form your canvas
• Pull on the edges of your tape to begin lifting it from the canvas

WARNING: Try to pull on tape with steady, slow pressure to avoid ripping canvas

• Your art work is now completed and is ready to be shown off

TIP: Hang your canvas in a room in your house with Command Strips to avoid damage to your wall

Nice job! I like how you did some of the tape pieces thinner so there were different sized spaces between the shapes :)
