Using Modern Masters Metallic Paints around your home can be a beautiful and inexpensive way to bring new life to a space! We came across this great project by Susan Penning of Living Rich On Less who decided to transform her exterior porch lights with our Metallic Paint vs. spending $200 on each of the real copper lights she had her eye on! Let’s check out her project!
Equipped with Modern Masters Copper Penny Metallic Paint and MasterClear® Protective Clear Topcoat, Susan was more than ready to create the look she desired – for much less. The Copper Penny Metallic Paint would give her a brilliant metallic look while the MasterClear® topcoat would provided added protection against the elements, including those color-fading UV rays!
After making sure the power was disconnected to the light, Susan carefully removed it and used a bit of spray primer to give the metallic paint a good surface to grab onto. This will help ensure a beautiful, long lasting finish.
She then gave the light two good coats of the metallic paint using a brush. As you can see, not only does the paint cover beautifully and brilliantly but it also goes a long way! She barely used any of the product for this step.
After waiting the recommended time, she applied a coat of MasterClear® Protective Topcoat which is specially formulated to not dull the metallic paint and maintain its shimmer. Not many topcoats have that feature — most would dull the metallic paint.
