Turning an Inexpensive Shower Curtain into a Work of Art

Family & Parenting
Sometimes it seems that you can’t find the right shower curtain you are looking for. Whether it’s for your own bathroom or as a gift to a friend, it’s necessary for it to match the general feel of the bathroom and the person using it.

With a little creativity, you can come up with your very own custom shower curtain. An inexpensive shower curtain can be personalized and turned into a priceless work of art.

Materials needed for the project

It is not really difficult to find a clear vinyl shower curtain at your bath and bathroom accessories stores. You may also use a transparent liner for this project, the one used with non-waterproof fabric curtains. Painting materials include paint pens, acrylic paints and brushes. These are purchasable in bookstores and art and crafts supplies stores. You will also need an image of your choice that you will paint onto the curtain; it can be anything such as an art poster, enlarged photograph of a beautiful landscape, or even of yourself or your loved ones. A roll of masking tape is also needed for this project.

Getting started with your customized shower curtain

Before you get on with the project, it is best if you first clean the vinyl material with water and some detergent. This is necessary to remove any powdery film on the surface that will prevent the paint from sticking and drying on it effectively. Dry it thoroughly with a clean rag afterwards.

For this example, a huge world map will be used to craft a world map shower curtain. Simply follow the step-by-step procedure below:

1. On a huge surface, place the shower curtain face down. Place the world map at the center face down on top of it. Tape the corners of the world map; just make sure that the vinyl surface beneath it is pulled taut as you do so. This is to ensure that you have a nice smooth surface to paint on later. 2. After the world map picture is secured well, turn the curtain right side up. Now you can see the image that you are going to copy onto the vinyl surface. Using the masking tape, apply a border around the world map so that the paint will not go beyond the edges. 3. With a paint pen, start to trace the outlines of the world map. If the image you have is too detailed, you might just want to trace the areas where the land and water parts meet, and not anymore the borders of adjacent countries. 4. Fill in the outlines with acrylic paint using your paint brush. The choice of colors, of course, depends on your taste or personality. You might also need to paint a second coating to get maximum paint coverage. 5. If you want, you can further embellish your curtain by placing sequins on the countries you have or wanting to visit. Fasten them by using hot glue. You may also use letter stencils to add the names of the countries. 6. Let the artwork dry completely for at least an hour before you remove the world map beneath. How about crafting a replica of your favorite painting, a much-loved cartoon character or a subway map shower curtain? Your custom shower curtain is limited only by your imagination.
