How To Tape & Paint Hexagon Patterned Wall

The first step is to make the stencil. I have a video showing how I made mine-
Essentially what you'll need to do is tape one hexagon to the wall, tape around it, remove it and retape it, tape around that one and keep on repeating until the wall is covered.
Taped Hexagons
Occasionally it helps to stop and make sure everything is lining up, level, and looks "right."
Painting individual hexagons for ombre
For an ombre effect, mix the main color with white (or white/grey/black to lighten and change the color). Start on one end and work the darker/lighter colors more on the other end.
