Instagram Takeovers

Instagram is a fantastic place to find inspiring design ideas, styling tips and gorgeous images on just about anything that interests you. We share A LOT of cool projects by designers, decorative painters, DIYers and more on our Instagram feed and love seeing all the amazing projects shared by YOU with us.  Some of our creative customers have a passion for Modern Masters and use our products frequently – and since just one share won’t do, the’ve started taking over our Instagram account! We’ve picked one project from the many they shared during their takeover time to showcase their artistry. Take a look…

Bravo, indeed.


Invitations painted with Modern Masters Metallic Paint | Project by Katie Gaines of Love Paper Paint | Wedding Ideas

Katie Gaines of Love Paper Paint runs a stationery design business while working as a decorative painter. Here is an invitation she created that used our Metallic Paints in a few ways. The box lids were painted with a mixture of Brass and Champagne Metallic Paint and then she dry brushed Chalk Paint® over the mix. The feather tips were brushed with the same Metallic Paint combo and dipped in glitter.


Flash Blue Metallic Paint by Modern Masters on the Ceiling to mimic an Iridescent Abalone Shell | Project by Amie Freling of Meme Hill Studios

Amie Freling of Meme Hill Studio is an incredible decorative artist out of New York. She finished a coffered ceiling with an iridescent decorative paint treatment incorporating our Flash Blue Metallic Paint. She says, “My client wanted it to look like she was looking in a shell.

  1. Today I saw a photo of a mural created with very rich matt paint. I googled than phoned the artist asking him what he had used. He said Modern Masters. Would that be your artist acrylics? Is it possible to get a set of pints?
    Thank you for info, Em
