Art is expensive. You don’t have to be an artist to create some interesting, modern spray paint art..and no one needs to know how easy it was!
You can get a very large canvas for cheap if you watch Michael’s or JoAnn fabrics sales. They often have 50% off, so the larger canvases are very reasonable. Or if you’re extra ambitious you can always stretch your own canvases
First off, I just want to say that this is just inspiration for so many different ways to create your own spray paint art. Use your imagination to create your own.
– create your own designs
– choose your own color scheme
– overanalyze every piece of tape. It is hard to mess up an abstract piece of art. Just have fun with it.
Here’s how I did it:
First off, I don’t have a photo of this, but I knew I wasn’t going to frame this piece (too expensive) so I spray painted the edges gold. This gives a polished look and adds a bit of interest from the side. You can easily choose your own edge colors – a pop of mint or red?! I used painters tape to tape over the edges before continuing.
Next, I spray painted the canvas black. Originally I wanted a very solid black, but I started to like the streaky look, so I stopped before I got to full coverage:
Time to create my design! I used the painters tape to create a random abstract pattern. I doubled up in some areas to create a thicker line, or you could even use different thicknesses of tape.
Once I was happy with my pattern, I used a small roller to spread white paint over the entire canvas. You could easily use white spray paint for this as well, I just happened to have a ton of extra paint lying around, so I went this route.
Viola! You’re an artist. Pretty impressive, eh? 😉
