A composite marble or granite material popularised by modernist architects, here terrazzo’s confetti-ish look is turned into a playful backdrop for a baby’s room.
1. Use a roller to paint the entire wall with two to three coats of Resene Truffle, then allow to dry.
2. Roughly sketch out on a piece of paper the terrazzo-style pattern you want to create on the wall, then use that as your guide. We used three colours: Resene Seachange, Resene Dawn Chorus and Resene Paddock.
3. Use a pencil to draw outlines of your shapes on the wall, then mask them out with painter’s tape. To create ragged edges, rip pieces of tape in half lengthways before sticking them on the wall. The more different angles and edges you can create, the better.
4. Use a roller to paint two to three coats of each of your chosen colours inside the tape. Once dry, remove the tape, assess the overall look, then repeat the process to create some additional smaller shapes that intersect with the larger ones.
