LIZ É- MARIE’ S PAINTING TIPS
• The Dulux Visualizer app is fantastic! It’s especially helpful when deciding between two colours, or if you need to add a second shade to your main colour. • Don’t be limited to just one theme throughout your home; you could use a single colour on your skirting boards to tie all the rooms together. • It’s not necessary to add white to your paint to make it lighter; simply choose the lightest shade on the colour chart. Go to the paint store and check out the colour cards – this will make it easier to choose. • Keep your paintbrushes ‘wet’ by wrapping them in cling film while you take a coffee break. • Place a strip of foil over the rim of the tin when you pour out the paint to prevent it from becoming clogged with paint. • Don’t be put off if, for example, you see a colour you like used specifically in a bedroom for a magazine shoot. Think big – it will probably also look amazing in a dining room!
