Paint Scrape Eid Cards – DIY Art Project

 

SUPPLIES:

  • Heavyweight paper, such as cardstock or          watercolour paper trimmed to 8.5″ x 5.5″

  • A2 sized envelopes

  • Acrylic Paints (Thicker paints may need to be         thinned with water.)

  • Masking Tape or Washi Tape      

  • Old Credit Card or Rewards Card

  • Paper Towel and Cleaner or Wipes – you will                    be making a mess!

  • Metallic Gold Alphabet Letter Stickers (or              whatever stickers you like)

PROCEDURE:

1.     Start by taping your paper down to your work        surface. Since I was making notecards, I had my              paper cut to 8.5″ x 5.5″. Your work surface will be         getting paint on it, so please don’t do it on your      expensive marble countertops or your heirloom              chest. Have cleaner on hand to clean up quickly                after each piece.

 

 

 

2.     Drip drops of paint along one side of your  paper. Stagger the drops and vary the colours. Have fun Experimenting with drop placements  and colour combinations.

3.     Place an old credit card or gift card above the drops on one side of the card and scrape down pulling the card off the edge of the paper on the other side.

4.     Wipe off the card and remove all the paint before moving to the other side. This will keep both sides looking the same and keep your colors from mixing too much.

5.     Repeat step 3, scraping the paint down off the edge of the paper again.

6.     Finally, peel up your piece from the work surface and wipe away any paint that went off the edge of the card.

7.     Okay, so after you have scraped your paint, cleaned up your mess, and let your beautiful artwork dry, you are ready to finish up your cards. 

8.     All that’s left to do is fold them in half and add a greeting to the front (if you like). When your cards are folded, you can call them done if you like a simple abstract look, or you can add greetings to the front with letter stickers. You can use a variety of metallic gold stickers for the cards.
