Lace Art : A do it yourself

Designing your own space is neither always easy nor cheap as others may thing. You may have visited an abstract art gallery where the cost of abstract art or contemporary paintings is way above what we can spend. But if you still desire the need to have something to hang on your wall or cover a surface with your own abstract painting, here is a Do it yourself Lace art which is both cheap and easy to do!

The things that you will need are:

  • Plastic/Newspaper – to protect your floor or table from paint bleeding
  • Stones/weights – to make sure that your cloth and lace will not move
  • Cloth – large enough to serve your intended purpose
  • Lace (with a good design) – that is large enough to cover your cloth
  • Spray Paint – there is a variety of spray paints available in the market, choose one that will best serve your purpose

Are all of your materials ready? Then it’s time to start your project! Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Lay your plastic or newspaper on the floor. The plastic or newspaper will help protect your working area from any paint bleeding or stray colors.
  2. Place the cloth with its right side up on top of the plastic/newspaper. Make sure that it is laid flat and even.
  3. 3. Place the lace on top of the cloth,. It should be flat and even like the cloth you laid earlier. Also, put stones or paper weights on the sides so that your lace and cloth will not move.
  4. 4. Spray the paint on the lace layer. Make sure that you get a full coverage of paint on your cloth.
  5. 5. Remove the lace and adore your work of art. A negative of your lace design will be transferred on the cloth. If you have a shorter lace, you may repeat the process starting from step 3 until you are able to cover the entire cloth.

You may also try to mount your cloth on a frame and hang it in one of your bland walls, use it as a table piece, as a lamp shade, drapery, as a garment cloth and in many other ways.  Happy Spraying!
