Metal Effects on DIY Magazine!

Metal Effects by Modern Masters featured in DIY MagazineMetal Effects Mania is taking over! As we were checking out the Fall 2015 issue of Better Homes & Gardens’ DIY Magazine, we spied our popular patination and oxidation products featured on their ‘Stuff We Love’ segment.

See all the possibilities in our ever-increasing Metal Effects Products board on Pinterest.

We’ll soon have Metal Effects available in complete kits so that you can easily grab a box and create pretty patinas for all your DIY projects! They’ll be your go-to products for creating oxidized finishes in minutes. Keep your eye on this space as we share more soon!

Exterior Projects with Metal Effects

Metal Effects is one of our most popular lines and it’s no wonder why – you can create age old patinas virtually overnight! The line is also versatile as you can use it for both residential, hospitality and commercial projects on both the interior and exterior. We’ve rounded up some of the latest exterior Metal Effects projects we’ve spied to inspire your own outside projects for the summer and fall!

Metal Effects Rust Finish on Building Exterior | Project by Raul De La Vega | Modern Masters Cafe BlogDecorative artists who work on exterior projects brave the weather and heights to create incredible facades. This was the case when Raul De La Vega enhanced a building exterior in Mexico with the Metal Effects Rust Finish. He says, “This project was not an easy task, but with your fine products and dedication it was possible”. We love the results!

Is your mind reeling with creative Metal Effects possibilities? We hope so! If you are using the patinas to enhance projects, we recommend protecting the Rust Finish with the Permacoat Xtreme, a protective sealer and topcoat made specifically to complement it. For the blue and green verdigris patinas, we recommend not topcoating them and leaving them to continue patinating naturally.

Modern Mastery: Kelly Peterson

We discovered the lovely work of decorative painter Kelly Peterson on Facebook. She was sharing several of her Modern Masters projects during a viral one-week showcase by decorative artists and we contacted her immediately to learn more. We’re happy to present her varied works with our products and talk about her studio, Layers of Color.

Kelly Peterson of Layers of Color | Modern Mastery Series Feature on the Modern Masters Cafe BlogKelly Peterson was in the construction industry for over 20 years running projects and managing an aluminum frame manufacturing company before starting her decorative finish business. “When decorative painting was introduced to me many years ago, I knew I finally found my passion. I couldn’t wait to figure out how to do it and share it with others. In 2003, I was very fortunate to move to very art-inspired cultural area outside of Sacramento, California. It was the perfect time to start my decorative painting business. I was so fortunate to find IDAL and the talented people at Modern Masters.” She became a Platinum Training Center for Modern Masters and through the studio and product lines, was able to create amazing finishes for her clients. A love of teaching also led her to begin faux finish classes for a local junior college. She now teaches classes each semester and has an amazing team of decorative finishers that create almost all the finishes for her studio, Layers of Color.

What are some of your favorite Modern Masters finishes?

We love working with Metallic Plaster, the Metallic Paint Collection and the Glazing Cream Colors. They are so versatile and can be used in so many applications from walls to cabinetry to furniture. We also have lots of fun with the Metal Effects patina finishes.

What is the most inspiring space or place you have visited?

We created a number of finishes for an amazing castle project in the Los Altos Hills Community of California. It was a 8000 square foot renovation from the original castle built in 1924. It took several years to complete the project. The new owner was dedicated to restore as much of the original character as possible. We even got to stencil an entire carport concrete floor with Modern Masters Metallic Paints and Modello Designs vinyl stencils! It was so much fun to work on until the day several of the other contractors told us the castle was haunted…We weren’t scared… We created finishes using the Metallic Plasters, Metallic Paints and Venetian Plaster.

Metal Effects Rust Finish Shows Its Elegant Side On A Living Room Screen

How to Paint A Folding Screen Using Rust And Metallic Paint | Modern Masters Cafe Blog Project Tutorial

I love how the excitement for Modern Masters Metal Effects keeps growing. Every day I see more and more creative uses for the rust and patina products on social media and the Modern Masters Cafe Blog.

When I discovered this extremely heavy wooden folding screen at a shop that was closing, I could just visualize potential. At the time, I had no earthly idea what I would conjure up.

How to Paint A Folding Screen Using Rust And Metallic Paint | Modern Masters Cafe Blog Project Tutorial

Months later, here is my finished project.

I decided to create rust with Modern Masters Iron Paint and Rust Activator, then stencil an overall pattern with Platinum Metallic Paint.

This combination of the dull rust and the shiny metallic paint is just gorgeous to me. It catches light streaming in the front window, and reflects a warm glow near the table lamp. The color even looks dramatically different from panel to panel, but it truly is just the lighting in our living room.

Folding Screen with Modern Masters Metal Effects Rust Finish and Platinum Metallic Paint

Earlier this year I posted about using Modern Masters Metallic Paints on outdoor garden accents, and on a tone-on-tone finish on a focus wall in our hall bathroom. I admit that I am now addicted to these creamy, full-bodied water-based paints that come in an amazing array of to-die-for colors.

Prep your work area with a drop cloth and good ventilation. After cleaning your piece, roll or brush on two coats of Metal Effects Primer, following drying times on the container. Let dry overnight.

BRUSH ON TWO COATS OF RUST ACTIVATOR

At this point, I added two layers of plastic under my piece and decided that I would brush on the Metal Effects Rust Activator, instead of spray it, since I was working in our kitchen.

Let dry a couple of hours, or until the rust quits changing. Here’s what it looks like after about an hour.

STENCIL

Stenciling with Modern Masters Metallic Paints over the Metal Effects Patina | DIY Tutorial on Modern Masters Cafe Blog

Use a large stencil brush. Dip the tips of the brush into the Platinum Metallic Paint, and offload any excess onto paper towels so it won’t run under the stencil.

I used a wall-size stencil, so to get started, I positioned the center of the stencil at the center of the top panel, then let the design go from there. Since I had not sealed the rust finish, I did need to change the tape often, because the rust stuck to the tape a bit.

Stenciling with Modern Masters Metallic Paint Collection | Royal Design Studio Stencil | DIY Folding Screen Project on the Modern Masters Cafe Blog

The key to this project was timing. The Primer has an overnight drying time and the other products all require two coats, with re-coat times to pay attention to.

Basically, it is fairly easy, and quite stunning, don’t you think?

And I was especially surprised at how well the wall mirror and old columns pulled this little corner vignette together.

Now, at this point, for most projects, you will definitely want to seal using the Permacoat Xtreme topcoat, made specificically for the Rust Patina Finish. Since this screen is not going to be handled at all, I decided to leave it as is.

I can’t wait to see what you paint using rust and metallics!

What an incredible first impression each front door makes!

Front Door Paint is available at selected Lowe’s and local retailers as well as online via Amazon, HomeDepot.com and the Modern Masters online shop.
