Design Your Tape Canvas:
Lightly stick torn strips of masking tape to a blank sheet of paper, creating an intriguing and playful design. Encourage students to experiment with different shapes and arrangements. Do this lightly by pressing down as you will peel this back off the paper.
Choose Your Colour Palette:
Opt for vibrant colours of Star Tempera Paint. Allow students to unleash their creativity as they decide on the colour scheme for their artwork.
Apply the Paint:
Cover the entire paper, including the masking tape, using paint brushes with the selected colours. Encourage students to explore blending and overlapping techniques to produce visually striking results.
Reveal the Artistry:
Carefully peel off the masking tape to unveil the untouched canvas beneath. Witness the thrill as sharp lines and distinctive shapes come to life.
Allow Drying Time:
Patience is key. Let the painted masterpiece dry completely. The anticipation adds an extra layer of excitement to the artistic process.
Showcase Your Creation:
Once dry, proudly display the artwork in your home or classroom. Observe as the vibrant creation becomes a focal point of joy and admiration.
