paint pour graduation cap

Try the latest trend of paint pouring on your graduation cap! This is a bold and artistic statement that take sminimal effort!
Step 1

First, cover the the entire bottom of your mortarboard with painter's tape, including the cap. Arrange four cups in the center of your covered working surface and place your graduation cap on top of the cups.

TIP: Use a disposable tablecloth to protect your working surface as well as gloves to protect your hands.


Step 2

Layer paint into a disposable cup. Alternate colors and add multiple layers and vary the order.


Step 3

Use a craft stick and turn the paint two times in the cut. Do not stir the paint, you just want to "mess it up" a little.


Step 4

Slowly pour paint over the top of the graduation cap. If needed, tilt the cap to spread and move the paint across the cap. Place back on the cups to dry.

TIP: Use a craft stick to move paint away from the center button.


Step 5

 Remove the tape.

TIP: If needed, use hot glue to secure your tassel around the button on the top of your graduation cap.
