A great way to bring personality and a fun sense of energy to your space is by using more than two colours. Add dimension to a single accent wall or character to a bedroom or bathroom. You can even use multiple paint colours to create designs on furniture, like a dresser or outdoor table.
Get started with the steps below. For freshly painted surfaces (at least 24 hours old and up to 7 days) we recommend using Scotch® Delicate Surface Masking Tape. Be sure to visit the rest of our How to Tape pages for simple paint prep and tape removal tips.
Mark your pattern on the wall with a pencil and ruler or stencil. Then place a dab of paint in each section of the pattern to help you keep track of which colour goes where.
Be sure to press the tape edges down firmly for a proper seal to get the best finish.
Apply your first paint colour, let it dry to the touch. Remove the tape by slowly peeling the tape back on itself at a 45 degree angle. Then make sure you wait 24 hours to repeat the process by re-taping the wall for the other shapes and colours.
Repeat this process for your second and third colours: tape, paint, let the paint dry to the touch, then remove your tape... wait 24 hours, tape, paint, let the paint dry to the touch, then remove your tape.
