Step 1

First, remove the 10ml tester sachet from the sleeve and open with scissors.

Squeeze out the paint and apply with a brush to your chosen surface or a piece of card.

Step 2

Paint a 30 x 30cm area in order to establish a good sense of the colour, finish and durability.

Step 3

Once you’ve tested the paint, slide the sachet back into the sleeve and keep for reference.

If you’re testing similar shades, don’t forget to make a note of the colour name next to your 30 x 30cm square.

And that’s it! Find the perfect colour palette to complement your interior and exterior décor with our convenient 10ml sachets.
