Paint Sample Art

I have really been inspired by a lot of awesome paint sample art I have seen by posts like these (give examples). Here is my hand at making some easy art to place in an 8x10 frame (or larger with a border).
I snipped off about 1cm of the paint sample where the name of the paint was and I then cut a ton of triangles, initially at random and then at the end to fit. Just glue on with a glue stick and say hello to your new art.

Some art projects had all the chips right next to each other, creating a type of mosaic art. However I chose to have the slight spaces in between because it is just a lot easier to work with, less tedious and I like how it the spaces in a way ties the art together and makes it look clean, not messy.

Are you inspired for some paint sample art? Go steal some paint samples from Home Depot or Lowes (the more the better) and craft away. Send me your creations!


  1. This is pretty cool! You could do a stained glass-esque thing, even, if you were artistic/detailed enough. I wouldn't mind having a few of these around my room :)

  2. It reminds me of stain glass too. IT also makes me recall a present my sister made for my dad last year, out of paint samples, kind of a scrap book deal.
