See the finish with Resene EzyPaint
Resene EzyPaint allows you to see the finish before you even start redecorating. No more worrying whether those two colours go together - you can now try them out for yourself. If they don't look right together, just keep trying other combinations until you create a scheme that is right for you. Use Resene EzyPaint to create a quick colour scheme using the extended gallery of over 200 interior and exterior images in just a few minutes, or really impress everyone by virtually painting your own home or project in an hour or so. If you aren't confident with colour schemes, choose from colour scheme ideas included in the software. Print, save and email your selected colour scheme and then start on a new colour scheme using a different picture if you wish.

And if you'd prefer to let someone else do the pathing and focus on the colouring, ask about our timesaving EzyPaint pathing service at any Resene ColorShop.
