Best Options For General Masking Tape Art
Artists find all sorts of use for masking tape. You can create geometric installations by arranging the easily-tearable strips in varying arrangements. Such shapes can provide a safer alternative to making stained glass windows while teaching about the principles of gestalt -- an art piece’s entire form should work better than the individual elements do separately.
Our general purpose masking comes in either natural cream or a variety of colors and is a great all-purpose tape. The cream works for labeling any item since they peel off and leave a clean surface.
If the cream isn’t your color, then you can try dark green, blue, red or black. If your students are kids, they will love the options. When they are adults, you open their minds to the possibility of trying new forms of the same media.
If you are working with kids, you can use masking tape to design three-dimensional simple projects. Consider covering balls of paper with masking tape and attaching to cardboard tubes to make microphones; it’s a simple, low-cost activity. If using the colored tape, your kids can design their microphones as they wish, or decorate the cream with tempera paint. They’ll be tearing up the floor with apt air mike performances.
What about for yourself, if you are a dabbler or professional? Masking tape can teach you new ways of thinking about how to engage in crafts. For Halloween, the tape can help with paper mache masks and appropriate cosplays with cardboard.
