This sticker resist artwork is a fun way for kids to use tape and paint to create art with shapes, letters or pictures.
Updated December 2022
With this one, we used washi tape and star stickers to create some wintry night skies, as well as snowflakes, and even our initials!
Sticker Resist Artwork for Kids
- Watercolor paper (or white posterboard/cardstock)
- Star stickers
- Washi tape
- Something to draw with (optional)
- Watercolor paints or liquid watercolors
- Salt (optional)
- Create your scene
Use the washi tape to create a house (or snowflake, skyscraper, cityscape, car, robot, trees, boat, initials, etc.). You can assemble a variety of pieces and other stickers as desired and even cut some of them into the shape you would like.
Add star stickers for a night sky effect.
- Add paint
Paint over and around your tape and sticker scene with watercolor paint for the night sky.
Sprinkle salt on the wet watercolors if desired for a starry look.
- Let dry
Once dry, brush off the excess salt then lift off the stickers and washi tape, revealing the scene.
If desired, you can trace the buildings and add detail at this point with a pen or pencil.
Do you have some tape and stickers you could use for a sticker resist art project for kids?
