Paint a cool canvas

You don’t have to be a trained artist to create a modernist masterpiece. You don’t even need fancy art equipment. These colourful pieces of abstract art are super easy to recreate and can be whipped up in an afternoon using paints from your DIY shop and, that old favourite, Frogtape.

  • Paint a cool canvas
    You’ll need:
      • Gold acrylic paint

      • Paint sample pots

      • Masking tape, Frogtape

      • Brushes

      1. Take a blank canvas, lay on a flat covered surface and paint with gold acrylic paint. Leave to dry

      2. Place strips of masking tape over the gold canvas to create a geometric pattern with three clear sections. The masked strips will reveal gold lines when removed so find a tape width you are happy with. Take time to ensure you get the shapes you want, taking off and replacing the strips if necessary.

      3. Once you have achieved a design you’re pleased with, paint each section a different colour and leave to dry.

    Tip

      LOOK FOR COLOUR HARMONY BY TESTING YOUR HUES AGAINST EACH OTHER ON A SCRAP OF CARD TO SEE IF THEY wORK TOGETHER
