But the problem was that we didn't buy painter's tape as thin as the one they used. So we improvised by cutting smaller pieces of painter's tape and then we finally gave up on that because it took so long, and went with scotch tape. The whole process was super depressing because things kept going wrong...not printing stencils, buying 2" painter's tape, using scotch tape, buying translucent paint, but somehow it turned out ok. To make the paint less translucent, I mixed it with a little black acrylic paint. So it turned into this dark green-like color. And using scotch tape didn't turn out to be such a bad idea.
Things You Will Need: painter's tape (in a decent size...probably 1" or less), acrylic paint (we bought two colors), paint brushes, canvases
Directions: 1. Place painter's tape wherever you want the white lines to be 2. Once tape is securely placed, paint away. 3. Remove tape after the paint has dried a litte 4. Make touch ups where paint bled through using white paint
Even though things didn't go the way we planned, we actually liked how it turned out in the end!
