Step 1

Step 2


  1. Begin by painting the sides of the tray in Resene Sea Nymph and let dry.
  2. Mask out the middle of your tray and paint in Resene Wax Flower. Once dry, use the pencil and ruler to create a pattern on the tray –  similar to how you would slice a cake. Mask off each piece, and paint them in testpots of Resene Sea Nymph, Resene Japonica and Resene Tequila, leaving one slice in Resene Wax Flower.
  3. Serve with your loved one’s favourite hot drink and breakfast treat, and you'll make their day!

Top tip: Get creative with your design – you could paint stripes, a geo design, chevrons or even just freehand paint a design of their favourite things. If you paint a segment in Resene FX Blackboard Paint you could even write them a special message for them to read while they are eating their delicious breakfast treat.
