Unleash your inner Bob Ross and create the wall art of your #aesthetic dreams with this quick and easy DIY project! On this episode of In The Know: DIY, TikTok’s DIY design darling, Tay Beepboop (@taybeepboop), teaches you how to make your own plaster canvas, elevating your living space with some Instagrammable flair and finesse.

Tools & Materials Used

Step 1: Cover The Canvas With Plaster

Using the plastic spatula, smooth a generous amount of plaster evenly on the entire blank canvas. Try to spread out the plaster as smoothly as possible, so the whole piece dries evenly.

Step 2: Make Your Design

Create interesting patterns and shapes on the canvas using the cake frosting applicators. If you’re not a fan of your design, no worries. Simply scrape over it with the spatula and begin again. Once you’re satisfied with the arrangement, let the canvas dry.

Step 3: Paint Your Canvas

Once the plaster changes from pink to white, it’s time to paint! The plaster doesn’t have to be totally white for you to start painting. Just make sure it’s hard to the touch. Squeeze a dollop of acrylic paint onto a piece of cardboard to use as a palette, and finally, let your artistic self shine.
