DIY Weekend Project Tutorial : Abstract Wall Art Painting

Saturday, January 12, 2013


This weekend tutorial is easy and simple enough. I can say, because i did mine yesterday. Remember when you did your painting class in elementary or junior high school? Nah, this one similar, but it will go well on your wall as well. 

Don't worry the material are easy to find, or maybe you already have it around your house.
You will need : 
  • Big canvas. My canvas size was 40 cm x 60 cm. You can go with the bigger canvas, it would be more fun! Tips from me, find with the smooth canvas. It would look good.
  • Spray painting. I bought the silver one, because couldn't find the gold with the same price. Turns out pretty good. 
  • Masking tape. 
  • Few color of acrylic paint. You can mix match the color, to get another color. Like get purple with red + blue. Get light blue by mixed blue + white. and so on...
Now, let's do this! 
1. Spray the canvas with the spray paint. make sure you spread to all part, and don't forget the corner. You can do 2 or 3 layer.

2. Take your masking tape, and start to do the line. See the picture below for the reference. But do your own, use your imagination. Remember, this is abstract, so you don't need to have always straight line. Mine wasn't all 4 square. Accidentally, i create some triangle.

3. Prepare some color you want with your palette. I used more color like you can see. There are black, red, orange, purple (red + blue), light purple (give more white paint), blue, green lime, gold, white, pink and light blue (add more white). Use your mix and match color fantasy to create more color. Or you want use the basic color, that's up to you. This is your own project! Don't forget to apply to the those empty space.

4. Last step. After make sure the paint are dried, you can pull up the masking tape. Do it smoothly, so it wont ruin the paint. Mine was a bit messy, but that's okay. I thought it because my canvas surface wasn't smooth enough. Well, maybe if i wanna do it again, i will buy the smoother surface. :p 

And you are done! 
So, how was it? Was it fun? Well at least you can add one more art into your blank wall.
