The paint swatch made by Master Paints is 84 square feet and 24% bigger than the last rescored that was made by PPG Pittsburgh Paints in the US on April 2011.
Measured by GWR adjudicator Carlos Martinez on March 13, 2013, the paint swatch was displayed during Punjab Youth Festival at Athlete Hall Punjab Football Stadium Lahore, Pakistan.
“The last record of largest paint swatch measured 6.31 square meters (68 square feet) while our paint swatch is 84 square feet. Breaking the paint swatch record under such weather conditions was quite a challenge. Keeping the swatch in good condition required a lot of technical attention. Credit goes to the participants who created the paint swatch with dire dedication,” said Amin Farooq Sufi, MD at Master Paints.
Last year on March 23, 2012 Master Paints made the largest canvas word record by taking Pakistan to The Guinness World record. The largest paint swatch record this year is yet another gift to the nation this year by Master Paints.
