I have a fondness for canvases – photos, quotes, art – I think everything looks better on a canvas. And my home is decorated with a number of canvases, both seasonal and year round. But until my easter egg canvas, I had have never made my own.
This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of FrogTape Brand Painter’s Tape.
Somehow staring at the literal blank canvas always overwhelmed me. I even bought a canvas once to make something and returned it. But that is silly, and now that I have created my own Easter canvas I will not be afraid to make more!
In the end, I just love the way it turned out. It makes a cheerful addition to the Easter decorations in the playroom.
How to Make Your Own Easter Egg Canvas
Since there is no such thing as freehand when I create art, I relied on Frog Tape® to help me create a template that was easy and worked perfectly.
- Blank Canvas
- Frog Tape®
- Puffy Paint
- Sponge Pouncers
- Parchment Paper
- Scrapbook Paper
Step two: Cover the egg with strips of Frog Tape®.
Step three: Cut out the egg shape.
Step four: Carefully remove Frog Tape® from parchment paper and scrapbook paper and place template on canvas. Hint, I found it easies to work left to right, sticking the tape to my work surface as I removed the left side.
Note – I used Frog Tape® Delicate Surface, next time I do this I will use normal Frog Tape® for this step and switch to Delicate Surface for the next step.
Step five: Using the Sponge Pouncer dab paint inside the egg shape to create your Easter Egg. Remove tape to reveal your perfect egg.
Step six: After your egg dries (a couple of hours to be safe), use Frog Tape® to mask off a wide line on your egg. Then fill in area by dabbing on another color of paint.
Step seven: Allow your stripe to dry, and then mask off another thinner stripe and dab on paint.
Note, I did not allow my paint to dry between steps because I was inpatient. So I formed a skinny piece of tape, and then smudged the whole thing with the back of my hand. Don’t do that! Let it dry.
Step eight: Once everything is dry, use the puffy paint to squirt polka dots directly onto the canvas.
Step nine: Allow to dry and admire.
Thanks to Frog Tape®, I am no longer afraid of a blank canvas. I plan to use this same method to make more seasonal canvases!
