Su Casa: A Friday Afternoon Art Project

Here's a post from community member LAKR from the Su Casa group.

We need a big piece of art on one of our walls in the living room.  I know it'll be awhile before I can afford something really good . . . so, this afternoon I got out the brushes and paint and canvas and made a smaller piece for my bedroom . . . see if you like it!Voila!  I think it represents how we're intertwined....

Have you finished any new projects in your own home? Be sure to share photos and tales in our Su Casa group!

The artist tape will work even better if you run a coat of clear medium around the outside of the tape to seal it up really well. I used to use the tape when I wanted super straight lines in a painting but the paint always bled around the edges. Someone told me to coat the edges in medium first and it works like a charm! You can get medium in any craft store. It will be in the paint section.

Artists tape. Go to a arts supply store or a craft store. It's masking tape, but comes really super narrow (like I used) to wider. The narrow stuff can be curved (as I did) if you're careful, Go over it with your fingers (fingernail) to make sure it contacts well, especially where it crosses other tape. The edges are not knife-edge perfect up close, but it still looks cool. I've read that you should remove the tape before the paint dries so it doesn't lift sections of paint.
