How To Paint Perfect Hard-Edge Shapes


Here are a few quick and simple tips for painting perfect hard-edge shapes. 


Demo performed using:

🎨 Paint from Liquitex

🎨 Brushes and canvas from Blick Art Materials

🎨 Tape from Frog Tape


Key Tips:

🎨 Use a high quality tape and check the edge for imperfects

🎨 Burnish your edges to ensure paint doesn't seep beneath

🎨 Use a clear coat medium (I used Liquitex Gloss Medium & Varnish)

🎨 Pull delicately and slowly (stay close to the surface and try to pull straight back)
