Colour Facts For June 2018
  1. Do you have green eyes? If yes, you are part of a very small group of people in the world! Green eye colour is the rarest colour found around the world, and it is estimated that only about 2% of the world's population has green coloured eyes. Green eye colour is a result of a mild amount of pigmentation in the eye with a golden tint. Did you know that there is a myth surrounding those with green eyes? They are believed to be good at inventing things, quick at making decisions without thinking too long and are a bit strange.

  2. Did you know that red hair is thicker than other colours? Each strand of red hair is usually thicker than other shades. This compensates for the fact that redheads have less hair. Apparently they have on average 90,000 strands. They are not exactly going bald though, as each strand of natural red hair is much thicker, so the appearance is often that redheads have more hair in general. And the good news is that these fewer but thicker strands make it easier to style too.

  3. An artist usually uses the subtractive colour system while painting, which is a way of mixing colours. With the additive colour system, the colour changes by adding different hues. With the subtractive colour system, the colour changes based on which hue you subtract or take away. For example, if you want a colour to appear redder, with the additive colour system, you simply add more red to the colour. With the subtractive colour system, you subtract the other hues until all you have left is the colour red. Colour play is fascinating, isn't it?

Colour Tips For June 2018

Colour Tips For June 2018
  1. Take a good look at your ceiling before painting any of the walls. If you think the ceiling requires refreshing, paint it first. Don't ever paint the walls first and then start with the ceiling. Rolling the ceiling drops blobs of paint onto everything that is below. Painting the ceiling first gives you the freedom to be less fussy along the walls. Any paint that gets slopped onto walls will get covered up later when you paint them, which is why it is a good idea to always keep them for later.

  2. The best way to spray or paint cabinet doors is to lay them flat on the ground – on top of an object. Allow each side to dry completely before turning them over to do the other side. Also, do not forget to place a towel or a piece of cloth between the cans and the doors to keep the paint from being scratched after you have turned it over. Laying doors flat will also prevent drips.

  3. Have you ever hammered down a paint can lid only to have paint splatter everywhere? You can prevent that by using a 5-in-1 tool and using the pointy end to punch a few holes through the groove of the can's rim. However, don't forget to rotate the tool left and right a little to widen the holes. The holes let excess paint to drain back into the can. The lid will cover the holes and create an airtight seal. If you do not have a 5-in-1 tool handy, you can punch some holes with a hammer and a nail.
