Modern Mastery: Igor Turovskiy

We enjoy the Modern Masters projects that our very creative customers share with us daily via e-mail or on our social sites. We discovered artist Igor Turovskiy’s work on Facebook when he shared one of his incredible patina and metallic artworks with us and we had to learn more!  He graciously agreed to chat with us and share some of his insights as we feature some of his Modern Mastery.

Canvas Artwork by Igor Turovskiy using Modern Masters Metal EffectsArtist Igor Turovskiy | Modern Masters CafeIgor Turovskiy grew up in Belarus, immersed in its natural and architectural beauty. The surroundings influenced his artistic interests and sparked his career as a graphic artist. In 1992, he moved to America and opened a graphic design studio. Several years later, he found his niche in the world of abstract art and opened his second studio, Igor Fine Art. He conveys emotions in his pieces through nuanced layers created with a mixture of metallic mica pigments, metallic paints, metal patinas and fluid acrylics. Let’s take a look.

Contemporary Abstract Patina Art by Igor Turovskiy | Modern Masters Cafe Blog

Igor works with most clients on commissioned pieces, with many clients seeing his art online and ordering a specific size or color.  Each piece normally takes 2 to 3 days to create, sometimes longer.  He started using Modern Masters Metallic Paint Collection and Metal Effects when they gave him the opportunity to create unique one of a kind art pieces. He explains, “I was painting with metallics for a while, using them for faux paint projects. I do art all the time, so it was natural to use the products and develop my own techniques.”

Metallic and Patina Canvas Art | Art by Igor Turovskiy | Modern Masters Cafe Blog

Igor has an art studio in Virginia Beach, VA, where he not only paints but also teaches art classes.  It is here that he creates his commissioned art for private collectors as well as larger projects for restaurants, hotels and other hospitality and commercial clients.

Modern Masters Metal Effects | Wall Finishes by Igor Turovskiy

After years of decorative painting commissions and his current work with abstract art, Igor consistently finds inspiration in many areas but one is close to his roots.  “The most inspiring place I’ve visited is St. Petersburg, Russia.  It’s an old historical town full of beautiful architecture and galleries.” You can see his love for both the modern and the historic in his patina art pieces.

The Warm Allure of Copper

Copper Decorating Ideas and Inspiration | Modern Masters Cafe BlogCopper has such rich, alluring tones that it’s made it a haute 2015 color trend for Interior Design.  It’s a fascinating color that works perfectly with neutral schemes and is a great metallic to add as a splash of color, working equally well with golds, silvers and bronzes.  There are variations of copper in both color and textures in many of our Modern Masters products and we’d thought we’d share some of them with you.

(Even Oprah magazine agrees!) She also recently used our Copper Reactive Metallic Paint from our Metal Effects line to patinate her mailbox.

On the top, they used Copper Metallic Paint as a table top color for a dresser and on the bottom, they used Copper Penny Metallic Paint on an updated Drexel desk.

Color Expert Maria Killam recently attended the High Point Furniture Market in October and came away with Coppers and Golds being one of her favorite takeaway trends. She feels they “add a sophisticated feel to furnishings and accessories”.  Designer Cheryl Hucks also attended the Market and noted that for 2015, “copper will the be the newest trend in metallics”.  Several journalists covered the market as well and one noted that “[Copper]…added sparkle to dozens of showrooms and displays, from painted walls to lighting fixtures.” Be sure to look for more of this luscious color in upcoming design features and projects – but we’d love to know what YOU think of Copper. Hit the comments and let us know!

The Rat Look on a Beetle with Modern Masters

We love to see incredible projects with our Modern Masters products and frequently receive images from all over the world. We recently were sent pics of an inspired project by creative customer Chris McQuaigue of the UK and we thought it was so inspired that we had to share it with you!

Giving a Rat Look to a Car with Modern Masters Metal Effects Rust FinishThe ‘Rat Look’ is a versatile scene in which the style and look of a car is highly personalized – very often with a rusted finish. Chris created ‘The Ratrod’ with the Iron Reactive Paint and the Rust Activator from our Metal Effects line. “It was an alternative to getting the car re-sprayed professionally by saving money and to create a car with more interest and character,” Chris explains. “It was a really fun project that certainly gets lots of looks and smiles. The great thing is that I now have a car that I don’t need to clean too much. When I scratched the fender the other day I was really happy about adding more character!”

Rust Finish on Car with Modern Masters Metal Effects | Rat LookEnjoying The Ratrod | Rust Finish on Beetle | Rat Look with Modern Masters Metal EffectsChris’ son Marco loves the car along with the six other Beetles he owns. “There is a community and ‘scene’ for Ratt’ed and rusty cars and there are a few ways of achieving the look. Some people sand the car back to bare metal and let it rust but I think the Modern Masters way is better!”.

According to the Rat Look website, RAT stands for Recycled Automotive Transport and is about keeping your vehicle on the road for as long as possible – however, many ratted cars frequently just sport the look and are in excellent mechanical condition.  If you’d like to learn more about this amazing car scene, please be sure to check out the Rat Look website for much, much more.

Chris let us know that he recently bought a sample pot of our Copper Metallic Paint to experiment with his newest Beetle project. He says, “The copper would look great – the paint is amazing!”.  We can’t wait to see what he comes up with.  Many thanks to Chris McQuaigue for introducing us to the ‘scene’ and for sharing his incredible project!

How has Modern Masters enhanced your business?

I was introduced to Modern Masters fifteen years ago when a fellow faux finisher (say that 5 times fast) asked me to help him with a large job faux finishing an entire 15,000 square foot home. We glazed a two and half story great room with the Tintable Scumble Glaze and I was hooked. The drying time was longer than any other glaze that I tried and there were absolutely no overlapping lines. I now use it on all my faux projects from large rooms to small accent pieces of furniture. Plus clients love that I custom tint, giving them a one-of-a kind project!

What is your go-to Modern Masters product?

My favorite products other than the Tintable Scumble Glaze is the Metallic Paint Collection. My all time favorite color is the Champagne Metallic Paint. It works with whites, creams, silvers and gold. Its a warm metallic that screams richness. I love horizontal stripes in the metallics. I roll it on with a 6-inch roller and then use a course brush to create so many effects. The way both artificial and natural lights interfere and create interest is amazing.

Metallic Stripes in Contemporary Office | Modern Masters Project by Meme Hill StudioA modern office receives a decidedly contemporary stripe treatment on the entryway and glazed walls in the main area.

 

What is your dream finishing project?

Any public space. My tag line is “Follow me paint the town. Literally!” and I love working in public spaces like restaurants, schools, hospitals and anyplace where art can be appreciated by those who might not be able to have my painting in their own homes. I feel everyone should be exposed to art. I’m always eager to volunteer my talents for charity events and fundraisers. My dream would be a part of a whole house makeover for a deserving family or child.

Top 5 Tips for Working with Metallic Paints

Best Metallic Paint TipsMetallic Paints are amazing – they add a gorgeous shimmer and shine to virtually any project and are perfect for surfaces such as walls, ceilings, furniture, fabrics and more! Our focus on quality, durability and beauty has made our Metallic Paint Collection the world leader in water base metallic paints. While working with them throughout the years, we’ve experimented with and gathered the best metallic paint tips for you to ensure gorgeous results. Want the deets? Let’s dig in!

TIP ONE: KNOW YOUR OPACITY

Modern Masters Metallic PaintsMetallic Paints can either be sheer, semi-opaque or opaque and it’s important to know the coverage differences and the cool effects you can create with each. Sheers are not meant to be used as a solid coat finish as they are a translucent paint used to create beautiful decorative finishes over another metallic paint color or over a low sheen acrylic or latex paint. If painting with metallics, Opaques will take two coats and Semi-Opaques take three. Experiment with all the sheens to find your fave treatments for your projects!

TIP TWO: TINT THE BASE

Top Tips for Using Metallic Paints | Modern Masters Cafe BlogTo help add depth and richness to your end result, start with a base of an acrylic primer or a low sheen acrylic latex paint tinted to a color close to your metallic paint color. Be sure not to use too close of a color as you might miss an area and not catch it until after you’ve wrapped up. Follow up with the recommended coverage of our metallic paints for a luxe finish.

TIP THREE: USE THE RIGHT ROLLERS, BRUSHES & SPRAYERS

Using the Right Rollers, Brushes and Sprayers with Modern Masters Metallic Paints | Top Metallic Paint TipsA good quality synthetic bristle paint brush, such as from Purdy, Wooster and Corona, all work well with our paint. Our Metallic Paint Roller or a 1/2″ synthetic nap roller works well for rolling on a wall or ceiling – but first make sure you rinse and dry your roller prior to use to help remove any loose lint. The addition of the Extender for Rolling when working on large surfaces or in warm or dry climates helps rolling the paint tremendously. Our Extender is made specifically for our metallic paint in order to maintain the shimmer of the finish and we do not recommend using standard latex extenders.

If spraying, use either an HVLP or Conventional Cup Gun Sprayer to apply metallic paints. For the smoothest application of paint, this is the way to go. For even further information, we have general settings on our Metallic Paint Technical Data Sheet.

TIP FOUR: CUT IN AND TAPE FOR SUCCESS

Painting Metallic Paint on the Wall | How to Cut In and Tape when Using Metallics | Modern Masters Cafe BlogTo prep your wall with tape, start with a low tack painter’s tape. After taping, you will cut in the wall a few feet at a time instead of the whole surface. (While a smaller wall is more forgiving, cutting in the entire area of a large wall first will result in framing the edges, which will show a difference in the finish.) Working with a wet edge is important to help eliminate roller edge marks as well. Following this rule for each coat is best. We have an excellent How to Roll with Metallic Paint video that shows you the process visually.

If you are taping over a fresh coat of metallic paint, give the paint at least eight (8) hours to dry. If there is a lot of paint build on the taped portion at the end of a project, merely lifting the tape will lift the skin of the paint and affect the finish. For a clean edge removal, we recommend using a straight edge with a razor blade to cut the tape line.

TIP FIVE: PROTECT YOUR WORK

Protecting Your Metallic Paint Projects | Best Tips for Working with MetallicsIf you are applying metallic paint on an exterior or high traffic interior, you will want to protect your beautiful work. What about if you need ‘scrub-ability’ on kitchen areas, bathrooms, cabinets, doors or resisting the work of little fingers? For all, we highly recommend top coating with our MasterClear® Protective Clear Topcoat after the last coat of Metallic Paint has been allowed to dry for 24 hours. MasterClear® is made specifically for our metallic paints to maintain the color and metallic shimmer of the finish – most topcoats will dull the metallic shimmer. Who wants that?

These top tips have been culled through years of experience and working with metallic paints. We hope our love and use of our metallic paints can help you achieve amazing results. If you have any questions (or top tips yourself!), click on the comments to reach us. Be sure to pin these top tips to keep the inspiring ideas close by for your next metallic paint project!
