MAKE A GRAPHIC PRINT

Homes+ (Australia) - - READERS’ HOMES -

Ed­wina bought this print on­line, but you can make a sim­i­lar one. You will need Medium of your choice (we sug­gest us­ing a thick art pa­per); pen­cil; ruler; paint­brushes; paint in three or more colours; painters tape

ONE Plan a geo­met­ric de­sign on pa­per us­ing a pen­cil and ruler. Di­vide pa­per with an an­gled line and draw in a mix of squares and tri­an­gles.

TWO Paint the largest shape on your art­work first, start­ing with your palest colour. Once com­pletely dry, use tape to get a per­fect line for your next colour. Wait un­til dry and then work in turn un­til all of your shapes are painted in.

THREE To frame on a bud­get, con­sider mak­ing your art­work to a spe­cific size to fit a store­bought frame.
