How to create a keepsake photo tray
duration: 0:0:31

Paint an old tray to use as a unique photo or art frame.

You will need: 

  • Resene Quick Dry waterborne primer undercoat
  • Resene testpots in Resene Black White, Resene Romantic, Resene Midnight Express and Resene Half Hammerhead
  • An old tray
  • Low tack masking tape
  • Ruler
  • Testpot brush
  • Washi tape to attach the photo or art

Step one. Coat the tray with Resene Quick Dry waterborne primer undercoat. 

Step two. Apply masking tape on a diagonal through the tray, and paint one side in Resene Black White. 

Step three. Paint the other side in Resene Midnight Express. Leave to almost dry then remove the masking tape. Top tip: don’t let the paint fully dry or the tape may lift the paint. 

Step four. Measure and mask the tray as shown.

Step five. Paint one of the triangles in Resene Romantic, and the other in Resene Half Hammerhead. Remove the masking tape. Attach your photo or artwork to the tray with washi tape and lean against the wall on top of your dresser or mantelpiece.
