Gorgeous Range Hoods with Modern Masters

The kitchen has always been one of the most important spaces in any home. At the center of our beloved kitchen is the often overlooked range hood, an important feature which can easily be transformed with the use of paints, plasters and patinas. Of course, its main function is to absorb odors, airborne grease and smoke but it can also have a much more aesthetic purpose – to serve as an excellent focal point to beautify the kitchen! We share a few examples of some of our favorite range hoods and how Modern Masters has helped bring these wonderful pieces to life with customized finishes that provide a crowning touch. Let’s take a look!

  1. Can you please share with me what products you used exactly and what was your method for the patina placement? My client wants me to replicate this but i cannot use the reactive paints, i’m going to have to use just the metallics because it’s a real iron drain pipe and i don’t want to responsible if it wasn’t sealed properly and eventually starting tarnishing and eating away at the real piple over the years.

  2. Hi, Stacie!

    Thanks for the great inquiry! Our Metal Effects Primer is a unique water base, acrylic primer designed to block Patina Aging Solutions & Rust Activator from reaching the metal or wood surface chosen as a substrate. It seals your surface properly. Here’s a link to read more about the primer: http://modernmasters.com/products.asp?mode=group&gid=67

    If you’d still like to explore using our metallic paints, please let us know which of the three featured patina range hoods your client was interested in and we can guide you from there. Thank you!

  5. I’m interested in aging my hood to look like aged copper that has a lot of the verdi green and turquoise. What colors of Modern Masters and what method do you suggest. Thanks so much for your help. Jeanette

    • Hi, Jeanette! Apologies for the late reply. The products you would want to look into is the Copper Reactive Metallic Paint as the base and both the Green and Blue Patina Aging Solution. We do recommend trying the products on another surface to test the final look that you’d like. Please let us know if you have further questions – thank you!

  7. Hi,
    Is there a tutorial for the hood vent
    “Tom Henman Decorative Painting used our Metal Effects Bronze Reactive Paint and Blue Patina Aging Solution for this unique range hood”
    I’m in love, and love the minimal blue patina


    • Hi, Judy – We don’t believe there is a tutorial for that particular project but we will soon release new videos on creating the blue patina. Please stay tuned to the blog and our social sites for the release in a few weeks!

  8. My hood is painted with oil paint. can I still use your water based primer or will I have to do something else? Also how did you achieve the pewter effect? And how would I achieve a distressed iron look. Thank you

    • Hi, Gwynne!

      Thank you for your comment and questions! On the oil paint, you will need to use a good quality bonding primer first as water based products do not ‘stick’ to oil based products. On the pewter effect, it was a vertical strie finish with the Pewter Metallic Paint over a deeper gray. We recommend dry brushing the metallic paint vertically over the deeper base to achieve the desired effect. On the distressed iron finish, Ms. Benoit used a custom treatment to achieve the effect. Here is a video on working with the Iron Reactive Paint and Rust: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3HbQQnIsIXs For both finishes, we recommend creating samples prior to starting the projects. Please let us know if we can help further!

  9. I also like the blackish range hood. Can you use the black iron with the patina’s and if so do they still maintain their blue and green colors with the black? Thanks. Tammy

  10. I am shopping for a range hood right now for my tiny kitchen. Can I use your bronze reactive paint on a stainless steel hood or does it have to be wood?

  11. Recently I’ve been interested in seeing what is possible for range hoods, so this article was very helpful for learning on what is possible! Personally, I’m a fan of the hoods that have a subtle, shimmery finish with metallic plasters. It has a refined look to it. I’d be interested in learning more about the maintenance that goes into maintaining the sheen of it.

  12. I am interested in a metal weathered looking range hood and wanted to check into the possibility of you making one for a kitchen renovation.
