Splatter Paint Wall Art




As you already know, around my house I use A LOT of plywood. It's super cheap, and even better, your home improvement store will cut it down to whatever size you want for free! One piece will easily make several projects.

I started by painting it white.


Next, I sketched my design and firmly applied painters tape on the spots I wanted to stay white. 


(Go back and press the edges down as hard as you can.)


Then, I got out a few of my favorite paint colors from my collection of craft paints...


...and started splattering!




After a couple hours, I took off the painters tape.
(Note: If bleeding should occur, use a damp paper towel to wipe/scrape off the paint. A Magic Eraser works well, too.)


I have the perfect place in mind for it...

  8. To keep paint from bleeding under the tape, paint over the edge of the tape with clear acrylic medium (matt finish) to seal the edges. Let dry for 20 minutes or so and then splatter/paint!
