Create your own blackboard city
duration: 0:1:33

Create your own mini city, using wood offcuts and Resene Blackboard Paint.

You will need:

  • Timber offcuts
  • Pencil and ruler
  • Drop saw
  • Sandpaper
  • Resene Art Action primer
  • Resene Blackboard Paint
  • Roller and tray
  • Chalk

Step one. Using the pencil and ruler, mark out where you’re going to cut the timber, at various lengths. You’ll be cutting straight along the bottom, with either a gable shape for the roof or flat top for the sky scrapers.

Step two. Cut the pieces using the drop saw, and sand the rough edges using sand paper.

Step three. Using the roller, apply an undercoat of Resene Art Action primer to the front and back of the timber pieces. Leave to dry.

Step four. Apply Resene Blackboard Paint over the top. Leave to dry overnight.

Step five. Give your children the chalk and show them how to add windows and doors to their mini houses and skyscrapers. They’ll love creating their own mini city!

Top tip: For a multi-coloured city use other Resene colours tinted into Resene Blackboard Paint or Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen.
