STYLISH CONCRETE WALL MAKEOVER
Updated: Nov 22, 2020
In summer, we tend to move our lives outside to make the most
of the long hot days with family and friends. Get the party started with
a simple splash of colour. It doesn’t need to be a full wall – consider
a geometric shape to make your courtyard pop.
Colours: Dulux Weathershield Vivid White™. Dulux Weathershield Mint Twist
HOW TO PAINT A CIRCLE
Start by using a pencil and string to create a compass and draw out the size of circle you want as your feature.
Cut in on the inside of the circle using a narrow brush with Dulux Weathershield.
Then fill in the middle with a larger brush.
HOW TO PAINT THE REST OF THE WALL
For the rest of the wall, cut in around the edges and hard to reach areas with a brush using Dulux Weathershield.
Using an 18 nap roller, load the tray with a reasonable amount of paint.
Start rolling the wall in an ‘M’ pattern.
Continue over the same section until the wall is evenly covered. Roll up to area of 1m2 size or paint the wall in sections.
Before paint starts to dry, using an unloaded roller, begin in the top left corner of your wall and gently let the roller roll down to the base in a straight line with no pressure. Repeat this action only this time, slightly overlap your last movement so your roller rubs away the line created by the previous stroke. Continue this across the area you have painted. This is called laying off.
Once the first coat is dry, repeat the total process again with a second coat.
If you are painting over a dark colour, try Dulux Weathershield +PLUS Super Hide. It provides two coat coverage over any colour to save you time on the job.
