Have fun with these instructions to make a Zebra or Tiger Stripe board from ScotchBlue™
For a wild idea, paint zebra or tiger stripes on a board to create a cool piece of artwork. Basic black zebra stripes are fun paired with a bright background color.
Or go extreme and create colored stripes like gray and yellow. Here’s how you do it.
You’ll Need: ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape, paint, paint brushes, putty knife or 5-in-1 tool, utility or precision knife and a wood board.
1. Paint & Tape
Decide what color zebra or tiger stripes you’d like and purchase your desired colors. Keeping in mind that your base color will be the color of the stripe, not the background color, paint your board with the base color and let dry.
Then lay down your tape in diagonal stripes, pressing the tape down as you go, and leaving space in between the stripes. Try laying it down in a different direction in one of the corners for a more realistic look.
Once your tape is laid down, cut off the edges of the tape in a random, wavy pattern using a utility or a precision knife. Remove the cut edges so the remaining tape has a curvy edge.
Paint over the entire board, including the tape, with your base color to seal the edges and let dry. After it has had ample time to dry, paint the entire board with your accent color. This will be the background color.
Once dry, pull the tape at a 45 degree and go wild!
