A Few More Modern Masters Ideas to Inspire…

On P.A.C.E. with Modern Masters!

Modern Masters had an opportunity to work with decorative artist Ellie Ellis, owner of Platinum Training Center Elite Artistry, and the Cascadian Artisans Guild on a deserving school philanthropic project. We recently chatted with Ellie about the program and the resulting artistry by the group, who all volunteered their time and efforts.  We hope you enjoy the whimsical and colorful artistry that brought joy to both students and staff!

P.A.C.E. is a program of the North Clackamas School District in Oregon that provides teen moms a high school education, parenting skills and an opportunity to further their education and training for a career while at the same time, offering onsite childcare for their infants and toddlers. Without the P.A.C.E. (Parenting, Academics, Careers and Employment) program, many of these mothers and their children would be condemned to a cycle of poverty.

Oregon's Cascadian Artist Guild

Cascadian Artisans Guild

Decorative artist Ellie Ellis, who had a personal connection to the program via her daughter Talitha, was struck with the facility’s plain white and grey walls as well as their lack of beauty and stimulation.  She says, “Being an artist, I want to create beauty around me, and it is important for these moms and children to have beauty around them. I thought, What if our guild took this on as a philanthropic project and we bring our combined talents to beautify the school for the teen moms, their children and the dedicated staff that work at P.A.C.E.?”. The guild wholeheartedly agreed to donate their time and talents and with the help of a few donations, including products from Modern Masters, they converged on the facility while it was closed for spring break.

Cloud Sky Mural in NurseryWall Glazing Cream and Glazing Cream Colors were used by artists Kasey Shantz and Carolyn Johnson Bell to achieve a beautiful cloud mural in the nursery room. Kasey wanted a cool blue color that would emulate evening without being too dark and also set upon painting several ‘benevolent moons’ so that the children would feel comfortable and relaxed.

Hallway Kids Mural with Sun done with Modern Masters Metallic PaintsArtist Melissa Barrett wanted a bright entry spot after spying the dreary area. The walls were repainted a cheery yellow and she then used Glazing Cream Colors and Metallic Paints for her joyful mural which included a happy sun with rainbow eyes set against a plaid background with the school’s colors.

Metallic Plaster Mural by Ellie Ellis | Modern MastersMural with Modern Masters Metallic Plaster by Ellie EllisOne of the various areas Ellie tackled herself was the breastfeeding room for the young mothers. She used a mix of Metallic Paint, Wall Glazing Cream and Metallic Plaster for the beautiful wall finish and starry skyline mural. The silhouettes include New York, Portland and Rome amongst beautiful ocean blue evening colors.  An inspiring quote was stenciled along the top wall areas of the room.

Tree Mural with Modern Masters Metallic Paints by Terry Leibenguth

A Gustav Klimt-inspired tree was painted by artist Terry Hansen Leibenguth.  She used metallic paints in blue and yellow to reflect the school’s colors.  Each young mother will be able to put her and her child’s name on a foam flower to hang from the branches in order to give them a sense of belonging.

Toddler Room Mural | Modern Masters Project by Ellie EllisThe toddler room received an incredible mural makeover! Artist Kathryn Owens used the Glazing Cream Colors for her wraparound cottage mural which included an expanded faux doorway, a playful dog and a roofline with various birds and butterflies. A bus was also handpainted underneath the coat hooks and the children’s photos will be placed inside the windows of the bus.  Kathryn had never used the Glazing Cream Colors before this project but says, “They are the best paints that I have ever used!”.

Monochromatic Blue Mural by Ellie Ellis with Modern Masters ProductsAbove, Ellie is working on a monochromatic blue mural for the girls bathroom with Wall Glazing Cream and Glazing Cream Colors. She also incorporated several Modern Masters Stencils. At the school entry below, Ellie used Venetian Blue Metallic Paint to add an inspiring quote for the staff, students and children.

Lettering Mural with Modern Masters Venetian Blue Metallic Paint | Ellie EllisWhen the students and staff came back on the Monday after spring break, they found an entirely different school waiting for them. One staff person said, with tears rolling down her cheeks, “What we feel in our hearts for the children and moms is now expressed on our walls”.  We are so proud to have been involved in such a worthy project – many thanks to Ellie Ellis for sharing her story, images and project with us!

Amazing Theme Paint Projects!

Who are some of the most discerning and demanding audiences when it comes to color and durability? If you said ‘Theme Parks’, you are spot on! Theme Parks need not only precise colors for branding and realistic effects, but also be confident that the paints they invest in will be extremely durable throughout the years. We developed Theme Paint™ to this end and since then, scenic artists, decorative painters and designers alike have also used them for hotels, restaurants, entertainment venues, retail shops, sports complexes and more. The highly specialized water base and color saturated paint line is both interior and exterior rated and is available in flat, satin and semi-gloss sheens. They resist the damaging effects of the sun’s ultra-violet rays and the results are a highly fade resistant paint. Let’s take a look at a few projects!

Theme Paints on the Rock Formations | Aulani Disney Resort HawaiiTheme Paint and Dead Flat Varnish | Aulani Disney Resort HawaiiThe Aulani Disney Resort & Spa in Hawaii celebrates Hawaii and their resort features their culture, traditions and landscapes.

PATIOS & GARDENS

We spend a lot of time outside in our patio, backyards and gardens – not to mention entertaining our friends and family.  Two of our blog friends share their Metal Effects projects with us…

Garden Planters with Metal Effects PatinaLaura from Pet Scribbles upgraded her planters with the Copper Reactive Metallic Paint and Green Patina Aging Solution back during the winter time.  In the meantime, she recently wrote a post on the durability of her Metal Effects garden planters. “These planters were subjected to snow, sleet, freezing rain, ice cold temps…and the paint has no chips or cracks. No signs that they have been outdoors for 4+ months. They look like the day I painted them!”  Thanks, Laura – and we think they look great in your garden!

Tips & Tools for Choosing the Perfect Front Door Color

Choosing the Perfect Front Door ColorA front door can make a big impact in the overall beauty and curb appeal of your home. It’s one of the first things a guest sees and has reemerged as the focal point that connects the occupants of a home with their personal style. Since recently introducing a new collection, Front Door Paint, we have received a lot of questions on prepwork and proper tools but also on how to choose the best color for an entrance.  Read on for our best front door color tips and a great tool we created to help you pick the perfect shade for an unforgettable first impression.

Modern Masters Front Door Paint

TIP ONE: ARCHITECTURE AND STYLE

Whether a Georgian, Tudor, Mediterranean or Contemporary among other styles, the design of a home can help guide you on a great choice of exterior colors that are appropriate for the home. The bright pastels that work gloriously on a Victorian might not be the best choice for a more traditional design. A more modern home can support a bold color choice and a gorgeous monotone scheme as well. That being said, rules are made to be broken! Choosing a casual shade can make a formal entrance less rigid and an elegant shade can add a touch of drama to an understated entrance.

TIP TWO: COORDINATION IS KEY

It’s important to also take into account many of the external factors.  Roofing, landscaping and the various materials used to create the home, such as wood or brick, can significantly help guide the final color choice for a front door. Coordinating other elements, such as shutters and trim, is also key to creating a complimentary color scheme that has room for wonderful contrasts.

TIP THREE: CREATING AN IMPACT

Homeowners usually change the color of their front door every seven years. When choosing a new color, take advantage of the change to create the impact you’d like. A light or vibrant hue brings a fresh energy to a home and a darker, more subdued color can give a sense of peace and tranquility.  Choosing a color such as a daring yellow or a cheerful coral can look beautiful in the summer next to a blooming garden and add a dose of joy during the winter doldrums.  A deep purple is unexpected and yet can exert a distinguished sophistication. Note that doors with glass can handle brighter colors and that using an unexpected shade can add the perfect finishing touch to a carefully chosen exterior color scheme.  The front door is a blank canvas that can be used to reflect personality while adding a flattering style to your home.

THE PERFECT TOOL FOR THE PERFECT COLOR

Modern Masters Front Door Paint App

Using color theory, emerging trends and the Emotional Color Wheel as a guide, 24 distinctive Front Door Paint colors were created. Want to see which is the one for you?  Our free Front Door Paint Android App and Front Door Paint iPhone App instantly lets you see which color will transform your front door.

Front Door Paint Options

Keeping these three tips in mind, it’s wonderful to find The Perfect Color — and incredibly disheartening to see it fade due to a variety of elements, including winter weather, sunshine and a general breakdown of the paints. Front Door Paint was made.to cover easily, dry quickly and NEVER fade. It’s also super easy to work with! Blogger Debbie Hays had a front door makeover and says, “This is the smoothest, easiest water based paint. Almost sad at how fast the project happened.” We hope you’ve enjoyed our tips and are inspired to transform your front door.  Leave us any questions you’d like in the comments and be sure to share your projects with us!

You can find Front Door Paint at selected Lowe’s and Ace Hardware shops, Amazon and the Modern Masters online shop.

 

Getting “Playful” With The New Modern Masters Front Door Paint

Today we feature guest blogger, the talented Debbie Hayes of My Patch of Blue Sky. Debbie is a huge fan of our products and has used them for many of her projects. When a recent home entrance project for her own home came up, she used our new Front Door Paint and is sharing her How to Paint a Front Door tutorial. Take it away, Debbie! 

Enhance Your Curb Appeal with Modern Masters Front Door PaintWe all know that the exterior of our home is an indicator of the style within, and who doesn’t want to express our unique personality even before a guest steps inside? Fortunately, one of the least expensive, biggest “bang for your buck” updates is a front door facelift. Having been an artist and faux finisher for many years, choosing color is easy and I am not afraid of going bold. Black, green and warm orange have all graced our entrance, which is within a deep courtyard.

I recently turned to Modern Masters new Front Door Paint for an overdue update. I have known the Modern Masters products for years though my finishing business, so I had confidence that they always develop trending, designer choices.

My transformed door using the color ‘Playful’ from Modern Masters Front Door Paint.

How did I choose our new color? Over the years I have created some personal criteria. The color needs to pop to compensate for the deep shadows that appear late in the day. Plus, we have a glass storm door, so any color gets dulled down through the glass.

Front door before new color.

The “before” color which has faded over the years.

And now there is a perfect free Front Door Paint iPhone App and a free Front Door Paint Android App – on both, you can take a photo of your door and scroll through the Front Door Paint colors to see what your door would look like with the different colors. There are 24 front door paint colors based on the emotional color wheel (like Hopeful, Mysterious, Elegant and more). That’s how I chose the color toned purple color “Playful”. It coordinates nicely with our hot color perennials. It’s bright but not electric. A happy and welcoming color that says, “an artist lives here”.

I was thrilled to discover that Front Door Paint is water-based, covers in two coats, dries quickly to a satin finish, and never fades. But, before I could begin my quick transformation I had to deal with 35 years of oil-based paint using an oil primer. It’s one extra step but you’ll appreciate it in coming years.

Here are some tips for getting the job done quickly and professionally. Translation: Here are all of the tips I can offer you from learning the hard way!

SUPPLIES

Door painting supplies.

• Front Door Paint: Modern Masters Front Door Paint. I live in North Carolina, so I get my Front Door Paint fix at Lowe’s in Mooresville, Huntersville, Matthews and Charlotte. See more Lowe’s and Ace Hardware retailers here.  But never fear you can also hop on Amazon.com and the Modern Masters online shop to purchase.

• Primer: Zinsser Cover Stain Primer also found at Lowe’s

• Tools: Paint pan, low-nap paint roller, 2 1/2″ angled sash brush for water-based paint and if needed, a 2 1/2″ angled sash brush for oil-based paint and paint thinner

• Incidentals: Razor blade, Tape, Rags, Stir sticks, Screw Driver or Drill, Dropcloth or Newspapers, Step Stool

STEP ONE

Plan your project for good weather, between about 40 to 90 degrees. Front Door Paint dries quickly but do allow drying time so that you can close the door without the paint sticking.

Wash off dirt and grease with detergent and let dry. Remove loose paint. Remove all of the numbers and hardware from the door. I know taping is quicker, but taking off the hardware assures a crisp, clean end result. Place the elements of each lock with the screws in a group for easy installation later.

Remove hardware from door.

STEP TWO

Tape off the hinges and glass unless you have an extra-steady hand with the brush. If you’re wondering why I don’t remove these, I have a confession. There is such a build-up of old that paint they are permanently affixed.

A tip for hinges is to tape over them and use a razor blade to remove the excess.

Tape off hinges.

STEP THREE  – Only if your door is already painted in oil-based paint.

Use your oil brush and Zinsser primer to cut in recessed areas on the wood door and to paint the storm door. Use the roller to paint the flat panels if you choose. Clean up using paint thinner. Follow drying instructions on the container, but my primer dried in about 30 minutes. Don’t worry, primer always looks wimpy but it works like a charm.

Tape and prime front doors.

STEP FOUR

Switch to your water-based paint brush and paint two coats of Front Door Paint. Brush in the direction of the grain. I was planning to roll the paint on the flat surfaces but after cutting in with the brush I was amazed. The paint glided on so smoothly that I just used the brush. The paint dried in an hour and I was able to re-coat in two hours.

Wash the brush in soap and water, re-install the hardware, step back and enjoy the beautiful results! And yes, the neighbors will love it. Everyone who walks by our home with a dog and a cup of coffee has commented on the transformation!

Now that you see how simple it is to beautify your abode, what color will you choose?Modern Masters Frint Door Paint

Now that you’re primed (that’s a pun) to get started, you can find Front Door Paint at selected Lowe’s and Ace Hardware shops, Amazon and the Modern Masters online shop.
