Warm weather offers the perfect opportunity to refresh the artwork on your walls. Forget about spending big bucks to purchase prints from an art store. Make your own botanically-inspired prints at a fraction of the price. This artwork looks great in any room or even the hallway of the home.
You will need:
Step 1: Cover your work surface with newspaper. Measure the inside of each picture frame and cut a cold-press board piece with dimensions that are one inch smaller on each side.
Step 2: Brush the masking liquid along the edges of each board, using imperfect strokes. Wherever this liquid is applied to the board, spray paint will not adhere. Paint quickly because the liquid dries quickly.
Step 3: After the masking liquid has dried, put a piece of plastic or silk greenery on top of each board. The greenery can extend past the board edges but make sure it lays flat. This may require you to bend it a bit.
Step 4: Keeping the greenery on the board, spray it with a single coat of spray paint.
Step 5: Remove the greenery and let the paint dry, using the drying time guidelines on the can of paint.
Step 6: Remove the dried masking liquid carefully from the board edges, beginning at the corners and using your fingers to guide the removal.
Step 7: If you are unable to remove sections of the dried liquid, use the eraser to get it off the board.
Step 8: Put each board on a white paper backing and then put it into a picture frame. Hang the frames on the walls of your home, arranging them together in a collage or displaying them separately.
