Lay out vertical strips of painter’s tape from top to bottom around the lampshade, dividing the shade into an even number of columns of equal width. Press the tape firmly against the fabric.
Use scissors to cut small pieces of tape and apply them at 45-degree angles to form V shapes down each column.
Although the layout of the V shapes doesn’t need to be precise, you’ll want crisp tips at the bottom of each V. Make 90-degree cuts in the tape using scissors for a cleaner look.
Brush the paint of your choice on the exposed areas between the tape strips, switching colors as desired. Take care to avoid pressing too hard and forcing paint under the edges of the tape. Let dry and touch up as needed.
After the paint dries, carefully remove the tape to reveal the painted pattern.
