From habitat plus - special paint effects
Master the art of masking, creating geometric shapes and pleasing plaids
Masking tape is not only a decorator’s friend, but also a creative person’s helpmate. All of the effects on these pages were achieved using low-tack masking tape and paint. No fancy stencils needed. Remove the tape before the paint completely dries, to avoid the paint being removed with the tape.
Did you know? There are various widths of masking tape as well as a handy low-tack version for use when you don't want to damage an already painted surface.
