Here’s an easy feature wall idea using trendy metallic paint and Plascon’s 2016 Colour of the Year.

Materials you will need:

  • 35mm paintbrush
  • Craft knife
  • Painter’s tape
  • Roller and tray
  • Drop sheet
  • 1ℓ Plascon – Atlantic Beach
  • 1ℓ Fired Earth Liquid Metal – Old Copper

Step 1

Use the painter’s tape to mask two asymmetrical triangles on the wall.

Top Tip: Asymmetrical triangles give an unconventional twist to the geometric theme. Although the wall is also striking with equilateral triangles if you’re a stickler for symmetry. What’s essential is that you get the two tips of the triangles sharp and perfectly touching.

Step 2

Use the craft knife to cut the tape where the two triangles meet so that the triangles touch each other neatly.

Step 3

Paint the bottom triangle with Fired Earth Liquid Metal Old Copper paint. You will need two to three coats. Let the paint dry between coats.

Step 4

Paint the top triangle with the Plascon’s Atlantic Beach. Polvin is the most affordable, but Cashmere will give you a luxurious matt finish. Again you will need to give it two to three coats to get a solid colour. Let the paint dry between coats.

Step 5

Once the paint is dry, remove the painter’s tape.
