Project step

Project step


  1. Paint the cover in your main background colour; Nikki used Resene Half Kumutoto. Leave to dry.
  2. Mask off the geo pattern using the washi tape.
  3. Lightly paint and fill in the patterns using your choice of colours; Nikki used Resene Freelance, Resene Ruby Tuesday and Resene She'll be Right.
  4. Remove the washi tape before the paint dries.

Top tip:  If you’d prefer a striped design simply paint your basecoat colour and allow to dry. Then mask off your stripes with washi tape or low tack masking tape, then paint your contrasting stripe colour. Remove the tape before the paint dries.
