Basically, it’s a matter of painting, adding tape, painting, taking some or all the tape off, adding more tape, painting more, taking some or all the tape off, adding more tape, more painting, and on and on. At the end, the last layer of tape is removed to reveal the layered designs. It’s simple, but very, very effective. We painted acrylic on canvas boards. The students had a great time seeing the results when it came time to take off the last pieces of tape.
