Oman Paint Chip Art {Tutorial}

I have wanted to teach my daughter about Oman, officially known as the Sultanate of Oman, for awhile now since it’s the last Arab country in the Arab League we haven’t discussed.


Oman (Arabic: عمان‎ ) is an Arab country on the southeastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula in Western Asia. It is bordered with the United Arab Emirates to the northwest, Saudi Arabia to the west, and Yemen to the southwest with the south and east on the Persian Gulf.  The Sultanate is administratively divided into eleven governorates.


We printed out a copy of them to use in today’s artwork made of paint chips. We got eleven chips of the same color variations of red, to show the unity of Oman, but highlight the differences.

We started by cutting out the country and outlining it on the white card stock.

We lightly outlined the eleven governorates.

We then cut the paint chips into random triangles.

We set glue down and added the paint chips.

Once all the major areas were done, we went back and added smaller triangles to fill in the gaps.

Once the mainland was done, we added an island for the provenance of Al Wusta.

Plus two little sections for the governorate of Musandam in the north.

This is what it looks like when we were done.

I have to say, the final artwork is visually stimulating.

We can frame it and it would look lovely to hang in any living room.
