Nautical wood art with a painted scallop design – made with Shape Tape and Americana Chalky Finish paint.

Nautical Beach Wood ArtHey crafty friends! It’s been two weeks since our beach vacation to Santa Cruz and I’m already anxious to go back. I can’t wait to chase the waves with the kids and collect seashells in the early morning. That is one of my favorite memories from my childhood. Whenever my mother took us to the ocean we would wake up early to walk the shore before the crowds came in. With a jar in hand we collected every seashell we could find. My sisters and I then took them home to clean and craft with the shells. We would glue them to frames, jewelry boxes, and even add sand dollars to our scrapbooks. All of these memories inspired me to make a nautical wood sign with painted scalloped “waves” using FrogTape’s Shape Tape.
This was my first time using FrogTape® Shape Tape and I’m thrilled with the results. The tape is very user-friendly and allows you to create an assortment of designs. Shape Tape is treated with patented PaintBlock® Technology. The polymer in the tape reacts with the water in the paint to create a gel micor-barrier and seals the edge. This allows you to create crisp, clean lines without worrying about the paint bleeding through. You can find the tape at Lowes and Walmart stores.

Step one: I used a foam brush to apply one coat of chalky finish paint in Everlasting. The instructions recommend waiting 3 days before applying tape to the paint. I allowed mine to dry overnight and didn’t have an issue but I also used only a thin coat of paint. FrogTape Shape Tape - Scallop ArtStep two: apply tape and use your second color of paint. Step three: remove tape while the paint is wet. Allow to dry for a few hours before handling.
