chalky paint chevron canvas reveal

Use painter's tape to create trendy and unique work of art, such as this Chalky Paint Chevron Canvas Reveal! Follow the instructions to see just how easy it is and make your very own!
Step 1

Begin by measuring and marking the canvas by a tape. Measure 6" [15.24 cm] across the top and make a mark and then measure 6" [15.24 cm] across the bottom and make a mark. Place tape from mark to mark, centring the tape over the mark. Press the tape down onto the canvas.

Step 2

Down the centre of the canvas, on the tape, measure and make a mark at 1½" [3.81 cm]. Apply tape from the top left corner of the canvas to the mark. The top of the tape should line up with the mark. Repeat this for the opposite side of the canvas.

Step 3

On the left of the canvas, mark 2" [5.08 cm] from the bottom of the tape. On the centre of the canvas, do the same. On the right side of the canvas, also mark 2" [5.08 cm] down. Place tape from the left mark to the centre mark and a piece from the right mark to the centre mark.

Step 4

On the left of the canvas, mark 1½" [3.81 cm] from the bottom of the tape. On the centre of the canvas, do the same. On the right side of the canvas, also mark 1½" [3.81 cm] down. Place tape from the left mark to the centre mark and a piece from the right mark to the centre mark.

Step 5

On the left of the canvas, mark 1¼" [3.175 cm] from the bottom of the tape. On the centre of the canvas, do the same. On the right side of the canvas, also mark 1¼" [3.175 cm] down. Place tape from the left mark to the centre mark and a piece from the right mark to the centre mark.

Step 6

On the left of the canvas, mark 1" [2.54 cm] from the bottom of the tape. On the centre of the canvas, do the same. On the right side of the canvas, also mark 1" [2.54 cm] down. Place tape from the left mark to the centre mark and a piece from the right mark to the centre mark.

Step 7

On the left of the canvas, mark 3/4"[1.91 cm] from the bottom of the tape. On the centre of the canvas, do the same. On the right side of the canvas, also mark 3/4" [1.91 cm] down. Place tape from the left mark to the centre mark and a piece from the right mark to the centre mark.

Step 8

Burnish all the tape down well. Pour out some of the Linen chalky paint onto the paper plate (or palette paper). Brush paint onto open canvas space and over the tape. This will help seal the tape to the canvas and ensure a crisp line when you paint on the colours. Let dry.

Step 9

Paint the open canvas space, using the other colours of chalky paint. Use the image as a guide or create your own pattern. Let dry.

Step 10

Remove the tape.

Step 11

Using sandpaper, sand over the painted areas to distress the paint. Brush off the dust and wipe down the canvas with a damp cloth.
