Painting Ideas: Ombré Spray Painting


Want a quick and easy way to ombre? Just spray! The Ombre look is a great way to upcycle an
old piece, or turn something bland into something bold. Start with a white base, and divide
your piece into segments based on the number of colors you’ll use– in this case, 3. Using your darkest color and working back
and forth, spray a light coat just slightly past the first dividing point. Using the next
lightest color, start the pass slightly before the first point, and spray just beyond the
second. Repeat with the last color. As always with spray paint, multiple light
coats are preferable to one heavy one, repeat the whole process until you build up to the
intensity of color you want and pay special attention to the ‘transitions’ between colors
as you work making sure you overlap and layer the colors there to reinforce the ombre look.
