    No need for a template. Just start taping and see what you can create with your own imagination. If you prefer working with a pattern, you can find links to tape patterns and other ideas on our Creative techniques page. For freshly painted surfaces (at least 24 hours old), we recommend ScotchBlue™ WALLS + WOOD FLOORS Painter’s Tape. And be sure to visit our How to tape page for basic paint prep and tape removal tips.

Step by step

  • A woman painting on a wall with a brush.

    Base colour

    Paint surface with your base colour. (The spaces you tape will remain this colour). Then wait at least 24 hours for the paint to dry.

  • A woman using ScotchBlue™ Painter's Tape to outline shapes on a wall.

    Pattern

    Now tape your painted surface with lines, stripes, zigzags, etc. Get creative and go free-form, or find a pattern from links below.

  • A woman rolling paint inside shapes on a wall.

    Second colour

    Paint over your taped design. Two light coats of paint are better than one thick coat.

  • A woman removing tape from the wall to reveal painted shapes.

    Reveal

    Wait 24 hours for the paint to dry. Then slowly remove the tape to reveal your clean, modern design.
