– Roll of wool (number according to the amount of colors you will use);
– Ink tray;

With dry paint, mark the geometric designs with crepe tape. Any crepe tape works for the project, but there are own tapes for painting. Press it against the wall so that the paint does not penetrate underneath it.
If you choose triangles, you can rely on the help of squares. For stripes, use a level to make them very close.
Placed ribbon, start painting the geometric shapes, in the colors you have chosen. Tip: Darker tones give the impression of shadow, while lighter tones emphasize light.

If necessary, touch the edges of the geometric figure with the brush.
