Colour perception is affected by many things, including the size of the colour sample you’re looking at. Generally the bigger the sample, the easier it is to distinguish the colour. That’s why we recommend using all of a Resene testpot on an A2 card to view the true colour. To make this even easier, for the most popular Resene colours, we have created Resene Big Colour, a large A2 sized paint swatch… just like a drawdown except it’s around four times larger.

The Resene Big Colour swatch can be moved around the space to be painted and folded into the corners to see how it will look on adjacent walls.  To imagine how a colour would look on all four walls, turn the large colour sample so the colour is innermost and join the ends so it becomes a cylinder shape.  Then look down into the cylinder for the full colour effect.

Resene Big Colour swatches are available for ordering from Resene ColorShops, RRP $8 per swatch.

Resene paint colours are also available in A4 swatches/drawdowns, Resene 55ml Testpots and a selection of colours are available in repositionable self-adhesive Resene Testpatches so you can place the colour on the wall to view it then move it around to suit.

Thinking of painting or decorating? Then come in and see the Resene team today for all the products and advice you need to get a superb finish.
