Whether you commute to work or have a teenager who loves trying tricks, this easy craft results in a board that's ready for tricks.

*May damage some substrates upon removal.

  • Clean and dry the surface. Apply Expressions Masking Tape (we used yellow) in several layers across the entire underside of the board. Trim around the wheels with a scissors or hobby knife.

  • Apply a couple of layers of Expressions Magic™ Tape in the same color as the masking tape. Burnish and trim excess tape.

  • From the center of the skateboard, make a burst pattern in a complementary color. Be sure to cut around the wheels. Create another burst in a bolder color. Burnish tape and trim excess.

  • Create a center "sun" by cutting Expressions Magic™ Tape in small sections and forming a jagged circle. Circle wheels with the same color using small sections of tape.

  • Do a final burnish and trim all excess tape with scissors or knife.

  • EXPERT TIP: If air bubbles form in the tape, use a needle to poke them, then flatten the tape.
