Use Expressions Masking Tape* and Expressions Washi Tape* to create a tribal design, as we did, or cover your sunglasses with a single color.


*May damage some substrates upon removal.

  • Clean the surface of the sunglasses.


  • Carefully adhere strips of tape to the frame of your sunglasses. On the "arm" of these glasses, we cut the flat edge of each new tape into a triangle. We used four tapes, and the triangle shape helped create a tribal pattern effect.


  • Gently rub the tape with your finger to make sure it's firmly adhered to the surface.


  • Trim excess tape with a hobby knife.


  • EXPERT TIP: Trim edges by turning the sunglasses upside down. Apply tape only to the outside edge.
