Resene kids art with Mark Rayner - Project 62

Difficulty level: Moderate

You will need: Old CD, Paintbrushes (including a large flat artists’ brush), Pencil, Piece of cardboard (ours measured approximately 900mm x 900mm), Resene Quick Dry waterborne primer undercoat, Resene Testpots of Resene Cabaret, Resene Geronimo (x2) and Resene Illusion, Wide sticky tape or parcel tape

Top tip: Scoring a straight line down the piece of cardboard with the back of a pair of scissors will help to make a neat fold.

Here's another idea: Try this cool combination of colour – here the spots were painted with Resene Grenadier and Resene Turbo over a background of Resene Optimist.
