This technique is really as easy as it looks. Make sure your tote bag is clean and wrinkle free, then run strips of tape across your bag in whatever fashion your heart desires; press along all edges to seal. Then spray a light coat of color over the bag and let it dry for a few minutes. Add additional light coats until you are happy with the color coverage, then let dry and remove the strips of tape. Tip: Applying several light coats of color versus one heavy coat helps prevent color from bleeding under the tape.
