Two-Ingredient Tuesday: Masking Tape + Watercolor

Here’s a simple technique that’s sure to create a delightful result. Stick masking tape on paper in any pattern you like—we made the letter O. Then simply watercolor all over the paper.

As O started painting, he told me this was a Van Gogh: “It’s a pretty famous painting.”

Then he added lighting bolts and his beloved bears, brown Baba and purple Sam.

When you’re done and the paint is dry, carefully peel off the tape to reveal the shape. We gave our “O” painting to Grandma and Grandpa!
