Try painting a statement circle on your wall with this simple 3-step guide by Dulux

You'll need

  • Leftover paint in your chosen paint colours

  • Slim paint brushes

Step 1: Create your base

Dig out some leftover tins and apply your base colour of fresh paint in a shade that will contrast well with your circle motif. Once you’ve applied the new background colour and the paint is completely dry, you’re ready to create your circle.

Step 2: Sketch your circle

You need to choose where you want to position your circle, so consider where your furniture and accessories will go. Tie a piece of string to the pencil and the other end to the pinpoint, which should then be pushed into the wall where you want the centre of your circle to be. The length of the string will determine the outer diameter of your circle. Holding the string taut, draw a circle on your wall. Next, tighten the string slightly to draw the inner edge of your circle outline.

Step 3: Fill it in

With a fine straight brush, carefully paint in between the two pencilled circles, working away from the top, in both directions in turn, to avoid any smudges. More circles can be created in this way as desired.
