Tape painting: Here is how we did it: - bought a big canvas and sprayed it metalic gold (2 layers) - added a pattern using washi / masking tape - painted the shapes using different colors acrylic paint - gently remove the tape
Canvas, Masking Tape, Spray Paint - So easy! - When I pulled off the tape, it looked a little "messy." Some of the spray paint had found its way under the tape. I ended up touching it up with white paint to perfect the lines. It's a great piece of artwork though and it gets tons of compliments.
Messiest thing Arthur has ever done. and he loved it! I just used paper; will do someday with canvas---Snowflake canvas art. Do a whole series of kid Christmas canvas art projects! Blue = snowflakes. Green = tree shape. Yellow = star. Red = wrapped present shape or ornament or holly. Kid art - just remove the masking tape when the paint dries (or before, works both ways).
Little ones can be very messy with their painting, but we should encourage and embrace it as part of the learning process! Lay masking tape on some canvases, and let your toddler go to town with colorful paint. When you strip off the tape, you'll have a lasting piece of art celebrating your toddler's creativity!
How adorable is this? Problem is... I might just go around "fixing" things that aren't broken. Fabric Tape @etsy
I love the idea of having this as "decoration" on the wall or in their bedroom but using it to chart their height instead of marking on the wall or door frame .. that way, you can take it with you AND you can still paint their room without messing it up :)
