Resene kids art with Mark Rayner - Project 49

Difficulty level: Moderate

You will need: A piece of MDF (ours measured 300mm x400mm), Paintbrushes (including an artists’ brush), Resene Blackboard Paint, Resene Quick Dry waterborne primer undercoat, Resene Testpots of Resene Roadster and Resene Toto

Top tip: Use a damp cloth to wipe off your chalk scores - it’ll make the blackboard look as good as new.

Here's another idea: Use a different colour combination - here we used Resene Yellow Sea for the frame and Resene Citron for the lettering.
