Earthcote Summer Promo Feature Wall #3

Plaid Wall* Click image to enlarge *



Contemporary checkerboard looks and plaid walls can be done using masking tape in different widths and configurations. Using texture on smooth paint in the same colour creates the pattern.

  1. To create the Plaid Wall pictured above, apply two coats ENVIROLITE 220.
  2. Mask off the block pattern (these were 12cm square), making sure your tape is firmly pressed to the surface, to avoid bleed.
  3. Now apply two coats Earthcote Limestone Paint – ‘Crushed Shell’. Allow to dry. Remove masking tape.

COST: Under R550 for 8m2 feature wall (excludes labour).

  • All the products and equipment needed to achieve this Plaid Wall can be picked up at your nearest Paint&Place. Visit the Paint&Place Store Locator to find one nearest to you.
