    Prepare surface

    Paint your basecoat and let it dry 24 hours, or skip this step and use an existing surface.

    Draw shapes

    Use a pencil to lightly draw your shapes on the surface. You can do this freehand, use a pencil and ruler, or cut a shape out of cardboard to use as a template.

    Tape

    Tape around each shape, making sure you protect all areas that should not be painted. And keep pencil lines inside the border of the tape.

    Paint and reveal
