Resene testpot tip: When using a Resene testpot, always paint all of the testpot (two coats) onto a very large piece of A2 card leaving a border around the edge. You can then move it around the room or space during the day and night to see how it looks. The border will help you see the true colour and not be distracted by the existing colour on your walls. Roll the painted sample so the colour is innermost and look down into it. This will give you an idea of how the colour will multiply if it is used on all walls.

*VOC = Volatile Organic Compound. These are organic materials that will form a vapour in air under the range of environmental conditions in which we live. Organic compounds means compounds (or chemicals) that use carbon as their basic building block and most jurisdictions have accepted that volatile means compounds that have a boiling point of less than 250°C at normal temperature and pressure. They are in many products – such as hair spray, cleaning products and paints. Solventborne paints have traditionally had VOC levels of 500 gms/L or more. Usually the higher the solvent level in the paint the higher the VOCs. VOCs can cause headaches and allergic reactions. So the lower the VOC the better. You can mitigate the effects of VOC with good ventilation and protective gear. Once the paint is fully cured (normally 3 weeks) then no further VOCs are emitted. Waterborne paints tend to have VOC levels of 100 gms/L or less and some have much lower levels, like Resene Zylone Sheen VOC Free and Resene Non VOC tinters.
