Paint effects - projects to try
Paint Effects are the ideal way to transform something ordinary into something extraordinary. The options are endless depending on the colours you select and combine together, the way you apply them and the project you choose to apply them to. To get started with paint effects select a small project first and build up confidence. Then progress to larger scale projects as you become used to the techniques. And if worse comes to worse and the paint effect doesn't work out the way you intended, simply paint over it and start again either with the same finish or perhaps a different technique or colour selection.
Gold effects can be created by mixing Resene Gold metallic with Resene Paint Effects medium, to create a gold paint effect. Experiment with the ratio of gold paint to paint effects medium depending on the intensity of the effect desired.
Resene sells a range of brushes, rollers and paint application equipment. Some specialist paint effects accessories are not available from Resene – we recommend you either purchase these from a specialist craft shop or online, or improvise by using another item with a similar texture. E.g. a comb effect can be created with many different types of combs and does not necessarily require a specialist paint effects comb.
Resene has brought together a range of Paint Effects projects to get you started. Simply click on the project you wish to try out, print out the project sheet and get started. To view the how to step by step instructions you will need Acrobat Reader.
