Painting Quilt Designs – Simplified

 

Easily create complex paint designs, by using the Vertical Motif as a blank template.  No more tedious masking of individual sections separately, with 1″ tape.  Cover your complete surface once, saving you time and hassle.   Watch how we simplified creating custom painted designs.  The only limitation, is your imagination.

 

SUPPLIES:

 

1. Paint Brush

2. 1″ Masking Tape

3. 18″ x 18″ wood pane

4. 6″ Putty Knife

5. Three paint colours

6. Vertical Motif (2 sheets)

7. Ruler

8. Pen

9. Knife

 

 

STEP ONE:  Apply a 1″ tape strip across the top, and partially peel back the liner backing.  Align and apply the sheet to the top edge of the panel, and press down evenly across.

 

 

STEP TWO:  Press down on the tape sheet with a putty knife, and peel back the liner.  Repeat until the panel is completely covered, and the liner removed.

 

 

NOTE:  Below is the pattern being created.  Highlighted in GRAY, are the tape sections to be removed.  The RED lines represent the cuts that need to be made in the tape.  

 


STEP THREE
:  Remove the top tape strip.  With a pen and ruler, draw the lines on the tape, as shown in the template above.

 

 

STEP FOUR:  With a knife and ruler, carefully cut the tape along the lines.

 

 

STEP FIVE:  Remove the tape sections that will be painted the same colour.  Press down on the edges of the tape with a putty knife, to ensure a good seal, then paint.

Let’s gather your supplies and get started! We will be creating the green and blue striped panel on the left.

SUPPLIES:

1. Dense foam roller and tray

2. 1″ Masking Tape

3. 18″ x 18″ wood veneer panel *

4. Paint(s)

5. Putty Knife

6. Vertical Motif – 4 sheets

* Note: We purchased a 24″ x 24″ veneered wood panel from Home Depot and cut it to size.


STEP ONE:  Use the perforations in the SurfaceMotif to tear off 2 sheets.  A video is available to watch on How to use the Perforations.

STEP TWO:  Tear a 1″ strip of masking tape, place it across the top sheet, and partially peel back the liner backing.  Align to the top edge of the panel and press down.  A video is available to watch on How to Apply and Align the sheets.

STEP THREE:  Continue to peel back the liner, pressing the sheet down onto the panel with your putty knife.  Repeat until the liner is completely removed.

STEP FOUR:  Create your pattern by removing all tape sections 1 through 3.  You can discover some of the other design possibilities at Vertical Motif.  Press down on the remaining tape with your putty knife.

STEP FIVE:  With a foam roller, roll on the paint, removing any excess paint on the tray.  Here we used Benjamin Moore Grassy Field.  Lastly, remove the remaining tape when the paint is dry to touch.

STEP SIX:  After the paint has fully dried, applying another 2 sheets of Vertical Motif on the adjacent edge, and repeat STEPS 1 – 5.  To create this pattern, remove sections 1 and 3 ONLY.  The blue we chose was Sherwin Williams Surfin.

As you can see, the paint lines are straight, sharp and clean.  A truly quick and simple project for anyone to try.  Make a few additional matching panels, to place above a fireplace, or bed as a headboard.  Customize the panel size, design and colours to fit your space.  You do not need to wait for the weekend, just 30 minutes.  The longest part of the project is waiting for the paint to dry, literally!
