Mosaic art panel

Create this eye-catching piece of outdoor art using a selection of fabulous Resene colours.

Resene art with Mark Rayner - Project 59

Difficulty level: Moderate

You will need: Piece of treated plywood, paintbrushes (including a medium artists’ brush), Resene Quick Dry, Resene Lumbersider tinted to Resene Seagrass, Resene testpots of Resene Alabaster, Resene All Black, Resene Bowie, Resene Elvis, Resene Monza, Resene Parsley and Resene Space Cadet.

To get the look: Mark painted the background fence with Resene Waterborne Woodsman tinted to Resene Woody Bay.

Other ideas: Use the same painted mosaic technique to decorate the top of a coffee table and for added protection finish off with two coats of Resene Aquaclear satin.

Step 1

Apply one coat of Resene Quick Dry to the front, sides and back of the plywood panel and allow two hours to dry.
