What you'll need:

  • paint (two colors, one lighter than the other)
  • foam core
  • scissors or utility knife
  • delicate-surface painter’s tape
  • paint brush

Step 1

Cut foam core to fit inside a frame. Paint it the lighter of two colors. Let dry.

Step 2

Divide the foam core in half, marking the center with a piece of delicate-surface painter’s tape. Paint one half a darker color (paint multiple coats for a more opaque look), then peel off the tape while the paint is still wet. Let dry; frame.
