PAINT THE RAIN­BOW

– the sky’s the limit with Re­sene’s new Multi-Fin­ish paint col­lec­tion

Simply You Living - - Contents -

Take your pick of the pig­ments with Re­sene’s ex­ten­sive new

colour col­lec­tion.

Red, orange, yel­low, green, blue, indigo and vi­o­let – we learn the seven colours of the rain­bow as chil­dren, but in re­al­ity the num­ber of pos­si­ble shades is in­fi­nite. Luck­ily, Re­sene’s new Multi-Fin­ish col­lec­tion has 896 colours to choose from, mean­ing you can now paint the rain­bow – and then some.

The range is pre­sented in a se­ries of 64 pal­ettes, mak­ing it easy to tap into this sea­son’s tone-on-tone trend, which trans­forms walls from a neu­tral can­vas for more vi­brant fur­nish­ings into an in­te­gral part of a room’s de­sign.

Our per­cep­tion of colour de­pends on light, which is why colours ap­pear to change in tone from day to night – and why it is vi­tally im­por­tant to test your favourite colours us­ing Re­sene test­pots in the room you want to use them in.

Sim­ply paint two coats of your cho­sen Re­sene test­pot onto A2 card, leav­ing a bor­der around the edge (this sep­a­rates the new colour from the ex­ist­ing one so you see the true colour). Move your painted swatches around the room dur­ing the day and at night to see which work best. Roll your swatch into a big cylin­der, with the colour on the in­side, and look down it to see how the paint would look on all walls.
