Lesson 7 - Masking Tape

Masking tape works well as a resist. It's super easy to apply and makes great straight edges. In this exercise we laid down strips of tape and worked on an abstracted still life.

In this example I painted a slightly different view in each section and let the white lines created by the tape unite the piece.

Adelheid used the tape to add a second, subtle dimension to her design.

Kazuyo created a complex still life with forms traveling over and under the taped grid.

Susan let the tape lines combine with the white flowers to create new interesting shapes.

Teresa created different width tape resist lines by cutting and combining tape pieces.

Carol was working on absorbent paper. The paint ran under the tape and created a loose feeling of leaves.
