P and I had our first successful attempt at Tape Resist art.
Here is how we did it.
First, I tore off several strips of painters tape and stuck them on my jeans. This was a tip I read that should make the tape less sticky and easier to peel off without damaging the paper.
Next, I had P place the pieces of painters tape onto white cardstock paper. You can use any type of paper but the thicker paper should do better.
After that, I put some red paint onto a paper plate and gave P the paint brush to cover the paper as he wanted.
Then, I peeled off the tape and let the paint dry. This part is tricky- you have to be careful not to tear the paper when you are pulling the tape off. I have definitely torn the paper and P didn’t notice, but I try to avoid it.
I drew a candy cane over his paint, cut and voila!
