Using a pencil and a ruler, draw lines onto the maché letters for you to use as a guideline as well as to create the geometric look.
Prep the letters ready for painting with strips of masking tape, this will stop any paint from going where you don’t want it to go.
Using a fine paintbrush, apply the acrylic paint. Make sure to keep the coat of paint thin as this will stop it from bleeding underneath the masking tape. Apply a second, or even third coat of paint if needed.
Top tip! If there is any pencil marks showing still, use a rubber to remove these. Don’t worry, it won’t damage the paint.
Remove all masking tape to reveal the finished look!
