Create a themed art display area for a kids’ room using stencils, plastic toys and Resene paint colours.
You will need:
- Jars with a lid
- Resene Waterborne Smooth Surface Sealer
- Plastic toys
- Cork pinboard
- Resene testpots
- Masking tape
Dinosaur storage jar lids
Paint a thin layer of Resene Waterborne Smooth Surface Sealer over the outside of the jar lid and your plastic toy and leave it to dry.
Glue the dinosaurs’ feet to the lid and then set aside until the glue is set.
Paint the outside of the lid and the dinosaur with your choice of Resene paint colours. Depending on the colour, you may need to do two coats.
Carefully tape your stencils in place with masking tape, so they don’t move.
Paint over the stencil with the Resene paint of your choice.
For a crisper result, use the pencil to draw around the dinosaur stencil and then use an artist’s brush to paint it in. You can also add a few dots in a contrasting colour.
