Masking Tape Blob Posters

Okay, I admit it. Technically this project uses masking tape, not duct tape. But it’s so much fun that I just have to post it anyway. You can create so many different designs with this project, and I’m excited to share it. You’ll need regular copy paper, masking tape, and watercolor paints. White regular paint is optional.

1. First, create your design on the paper by attaching masking tape in the desired shape. As you can see, I wrote “Love.”

2. Now totally be creative and just paint giant blobs of color. It’s okay to paint over the masking tape. Just pretend it’s not there!

3. After letting the paint completely dry, slowly and gently peel off the masking tape. If you accidentally peel off some paper, you can touch it up with white paint. Or just leave it, if you like the look (I did).

And…voila! A masking tape blob poster! P.S. Why didn’t I use duct tape? It’s too sticky!
