Paint Glamorous Halloween Pumpkins With Gorgeous Metallics!

Glamorous Pumpkins with Gorgeous Metallics DIY | Debbie Hayes of My Patch of Blue Sky | Modern Masters

Boo! Can you believe it’s already time to think Halloween? Our girls are grown now, so October 31st just doesn’t have the allure like it did back in the day when we were choosing their costumes, decorating with spooky accessories, and trick-or-treating for the mother lode of candy.

A quick and enjoyable project for me, sans kiddos, is decorating our mantel in the den for the season. A few props found exploring cupboards, some orange twinkly mini-lights, black gauze and a sparkly Boo sign from the dollar store, and I was done! Well, almost.

I needed a pile of pumpkins to pull the effect all together. Painted with the Metallic Paint Collection from Modern Masters fall colors to set the mood, of course.

My daughter Mia and I drove from our home in central North Carolina, up to the rolling hills near Cana, Virginia to find real pumpkins, and do a little antique junkin’. We even enjoyed a touristy lunch in the quaint downtown of Mount Airy, NC. You know, the town near Mayberry, made famous by Andy Griffith, Opie, Aunt Bea, and Barney. It was a beautiful day and I was also excited to get home and create my holiday mantle.

PRODUCTS:

– Your favorite array of pumpkins
Pure White Chalk Paint®
Black Pearl Metallic Paint
Copper Metallic Paint
Snowflake Metallic Paint

Once home, I scrubbed and hosed everything down in preparation to prime and paint.

Just like with any painting project, prep is key, whether you are using real pumpkins, or imitation ones. I painted on two coats of Pure White Chalk Paint®, then let it all dry.

Modern Masters offers such glorious color choices that normally would make me crazy, trying to select my faves:

I decided to use Snowflake, Black Pearl, and Copper. The colors are semi-opaque and oh-so-buttery-soft to paint on.

Here you can see what one coat of coverage looks like. Two coats were all I needed to get good coverage.

Then, yippee, it was time to finish decorating. Who knew that a gnarly, warty pumpkin could look so awesome.

My weird grouping of clay masks, coupled with our raku cats, suddenly became apropos for Halloween, too.

Even piles of 1873 dumpster-find encyclopedias worked perfectly for layering in this vignette.

Aren’t the metallic colors stunning? They are warm, pearlescent, reflective, and amazingly, you can do oodles of projects with just one container.

Get Comfortable Using Front Door Paint On Your Back Door

Back Door Redo and Transformation with Modern Masters Never Fades Front Door Paint | DIY How-to Project by Debbie Hayes of My Patch of Blue Sky

Check out our two pretty back doors that I just painted with Modern Masters Front Door Paint. Never one to follow the rules, I figured what’s good for our front door must be good to spiff the doors that face our big deck, too.

A couple of years ago I got hooked on Front Door Paint. Seriously. In a big way. So much so that I have painted our front door not once, but twice. This magic, buttery-smooth paint does not fade, and lasts for ages, but recently I was in a “let’s change the front door color mood” and repainted on a whim. The color Fortunate is such a wow, that we get lots of compliments from the neighbors, and even the delivery folks.

During the spring of 2015, I painted our shutters with the grey Mysterious Front Door Paint color. We love it so much, I think this color will remain indefinitely.

This week I painted our two back doors, including storm doors, with the color Comfortable. I have to laugh a bit at the name because here in North Carolina it’s hot as a firecracker and steamy. But my efforts paid off. Loving our warm new look, even in this area where we never use this back door, originally intended for loading up firewood. Can you just see the humidity hanging in the air?

Color and Design Ideas for Your Back Door | Exterior Back Porch Updates | Modern Masters Non Fade Front Door Paint | Project How-to by My Patch of Blue Sky

Usually, if you begin in the morning on a nice day, you can have your project complete by the afternoon. Since I had two doors and storm doors, I worked at it overnight.

First, I chose my color from the gorgeous color palette. Comfortable was perfect, since we have some new red-orange cushions on the deck, and we always plant orange impatiens.

While selecting your color, don’t miss the 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 25 Front Door Paint colors based on the emotional color wheel (like Hopeful, Mysterious, Elegant and more).

SUPPLIES

How to Paint a Back Door | DIY Project by My Patch of Blue Sky

• Front Door Paint: Modern Masters non-fade Front Door Paint. You can purchase it online at HomeDepot.com, Amazon.com and the Modern Masters Online Shop.

• Primer, if needed: Zinsser Cover Stain Primer

• 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

If your door is painted with oil paint, you will need to apply a bonding primer first before you can use the water-based Front Door Paint. Go here for complete directions.

If your door is now painted with water-based paint, like mine, you can choose to paint one coat of primer first, depending on the color you chose. For example, if you have a black door and you want to paint a lighter color, priming first will save a coat or so of paint.

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.

The before. Don’t laugh, but I had never gotten around to painting both doors the same color.

Back Door Redo Transformation Tips | DIY Project and How-to by Debbie Hayes of My Patch of Blue Sky | Modern Masters non fade Front Door Paint

Sand lightly if required, then wipe off the residue. Tape off any areas like the glass on a storm door, and normally I recommend removing all hardware for a professional paint job. but for our back doors, I taped off the hardware this time, because we need to replace it all.

Cut in the panels first, and paint away. You can use a brush for the entire door, or choose the roller for flat areas. I used a brush for this project since I had a lot of smaller areas. Even though a sash brush fits nicely into the paint container, I used my Modern Masters roller pan, since I can be a klutz at times. One coat covered the grey and brown colors pretty well, and two coats were perfect.

Dry time is one hour, and re-coat time is two hours.

I did have to juggle painting the four doors, due to drying times, coming and going, trying to paint in the shade to beat the heat, and a huge deluge one day.

How to Create A Silvery, Rustic Aged Effect On A Metal Planter

How to Create a Silvery, Rustic Aged Effect on a Metal Planter | Modern Masters

Did you read my recent front door redo, using Modern Masters non-fade Front Door Paint? If so, you learned that we experienced a huge, damaging hail storm on May 2. Now, weeks later, we have a new roof, our flowers are finally blooming to the max, and hubby and I have worked tirelessly on our deck and front natural area. Dozens of new perennials, bags of mulch and pebbles later, we are almost done recuperating.

As always, we are still on the lookout for projects to incorporate into our fresh exterior décor. I spied this boring and bland empty planter just screaming, “paint me.” Since I have worked with Modern Masters for quite some time now, ideas quickly come to mind, and a fast look-see in my studio turned up the oh-so-versatile Texture Effects, Metal Effects, Metallic Paint, and a large stencil.

DIY Silvery, Rustic Aged Garden Planter How-to | Before Pic | Modern Masters Blog

Modern Masters recently introduced Metal Effects Kits in Rust, Green and Blue Patinas, available online at TheHomeDepot.com. I’m willing to bet you have been drooling over projects you have seen using the Metal Effects products, and now the ability to purchase a kit with everything you need at your fingertips makes jumping into a project super simple and easy.

I discovered that I could create a neutral-toned subtle look on a planter, or, jazz up the details with Silver Metallic paint. How cool is that?

Modern Masters Metal Effects Rust Kit | Metal Planter DIY on Modern Masters Blog

I hope you are intrigued with my boring now beautiful planter, and you’re already looking around the house for an item to transform. Here’s the supply list, and you will quickly discover that many more projects can be done with these materials, in varying combinations.

SUPPLIES

Water Base Primer for your Surface (i.e., metal, plastic)

One Metal Effects Rust Kit

One Quart of Silver Metallic Paint

One Quart of Texture Effects

One 16 oz. Natural Brown Glazing Cream Color

One Large Stencil like the Royal Design Studio Indian Floral Wall Stencil that I used

Drop cloth, sea sponge, wet rag, painters tape, color shaper tool, paint brushes, scissors

HERE’S WHAT’S INCLUDED IN THE RUST PATINA KIT, to cover about 18 square feet:

8 ounces of Metal Effects Primer, 8 ounces of Iron Reactive Paint, 10 ounces of Rust Activator, 2 brushes, 2 stir sticks and complete instructions. The kit also includes the recommended Permacoat Xtreme Sealer.

Before you get started, prep the area with a drop cloth as needed. It’s a good idea not to invite kids and pets since you will be spraying. Make sure your area is well ventilated, too, or work outside in the shade like I did.

BRUSH ON PRIMERS

Using Metal Effects Rust Kit and Metallic Paints to Create a Rustic Planter | Modern Masters Blog How-to

First, clean and prep your surface with a good primer for your surface. I used a metal primer tinted gray and let dry. Using one of the brushes in the Metal Effects Kit, brush on a coat of Metal Effects Primer. Once dry, you can add the second coat. Let dry at least 12 hours or overnight.

TINT THE TEXTURE EFFECTS

Tinting Texture Effects | Silver & Rust Metal Planter DIY | Modern Masters Blog

Just in case my planter gets bumped or scratched while outside, I tinted the Texture Effects with Natural Brown Glazing Cream, so the pure white color would not show if chipped off. I used 1 pint of Texture Effects and 4 ounces of Natural Brown so that I could have enough to use on all four sides of the planter and not need to mix more. You can tint to taste on this step. It does turn out out I could have made less about half as much, so I can seal the leftovers up for another time.

STENCIL EMBOSSING

Creating a Raised Pattern on a Flat Surface | Rustic Garden Planter DIY by Debbie Hayes on the Modern Masters Blog

I am an enthusiastic painter and project-doer, but I am also frugal with my time. So, I selected this very large wall stencil that covers my planter entirely. That way, I did not have to wait for the pattern to dry, then move the stencil to fill in missing design areas. I cut the top of the stencil material off so that I could easily start the design right at the top. After taping, I applied the mixture using a color shaper tool.

Attempt to hold the stencil tight to the surface with one hand so the mix won’t bleed, but no worries if happens a bit. Perfection is not required.

This looks weird, I admit, but I propped the lightweight planter up with a log to keep the planter from touching the step so I could do all sides at once. Let dry hard.

A wide craft brush worked great.

I was planning to do 2 or even 3 coats of the Silver Metallic Paint, but, magically, one coat was perfect. Let dry hard. I left it overnight.

TAP ON SOME IRON REACTIVE PAINT

Use the sea sponge, tapping it into the iron paint on a palette of tin foil, then onto the surface.

Modern Masters Metal Effects DIY with Metallic Paints | Modern Rustic Garden Planter How-to

Silvery, Rustic Garden Planter DIY | How-to on the Modern Masters Blog | Project by Debbie Hayes of My Patch of Blue Sky You can use the chip brush in the kit to add iron paint in recessed areas. You need two coats, so after the first one dries, add some more in approximately the same areas. Let dry well.

SPRAY THE RUST PATINA ACTIVATOR

Contemporary Rustic Garden Decor How-to | Modern Masters Blog

Spray one coat, beginning at the top. Wait five minutes, then spray again. About 20 minutes into the drying process, as the rust begins to form, I used the barely dampened clean sponge to pull off some areas until I liked the look. Then I let the rust process finish.

You know that I am a rust, crust, and patina lover by now, I am sure. I don’t have too many items that belonged to my parents, who are now residing in a lovely garden somewhere in heaven.

I do cherish this old concrete statue, painted lovingly by my Dad over 40 years ago to grace his fish pond. Damaged over the years, she has developed her own natural texture and color, and I love it paired with this rusty, stenciled metal planter now.

YOU CAN EVEN CHANGE YOUR MIND AND ADD MORE SILVER

Painting an Embossed Stencil Pattern with Metallic Paint | DIY Rustic Contemporary Garden Planter | How to by Debbie Hayes of My Patch of Blue Sky | Modern Masters

Sometimes, I sleep on a project after it is completed, and decide to do just “one more thing.” So I am guessing you have done it before too, right? So I got out the Silver Metallic Paint, and a small, stiff artist brush and very quickly dry-brushed some paint on all of the raised leaves, flowers and stems. No kidding, this took about 15 minutes.

Now this oversized, boring planter literally glows, even as the sun sets over our front courtyard. No matter which of the two looks you adore, you can achieve them with the same materials. After your piece dries, you can apply the Permacoat Xtreme sealer for additional weather resistance.

Change Your Front Door Color On A Whim In A Couple Of Hours!

File May 24, 11 40 08 AM

The word – and color – of the day is Fortunate. As in the fun and funky Modern Masters Front Door Paint color Fortunate that I just used to brighten up our curb appeal in a big way.

In a nutshell, our little neighborhood was hit by a huge hailstorm three weeks ago. And yes, we are so fortunate to have weathered this national-news-featured storm with damage that we can manage. Just a new paint job on my Jeep, and a new roof. Sadly, several of our neighbors had to move out of their homes for months. But, best of all, everyone is safe.

We are still in a mess. Leaves were stripped from the trees and blooms from the rose bushes. Some of our favorite plants, like our massive gorgeous hostas, won’t come back this year. Our gutters are maxed, and we’re waiting for the roofers.

With a color change on the roof, using the non-fade Front Door Paint for fast, immediate gratification was a project that I could get excited about while impatiently waiting for the roofers to arrive soon.

File May 24, 3 27 36 PM

About two years ago I chose the Front Door Paint color PlayfuI for the front door makeover project that you see below. We have so enjoyed the eye-catching color, but now I am planning to choose a grey architectural material for the new roof, so why not update the front door, too?

Screen Shot 2016-05-24 at 12.31.48 PM

Also, during the spring of 2015, I painted our shutters with the grey Mysterious Front Door Paint color. The new roof and updated Fortunate front door color will blend perfectly with the bright hostas and annuals. So no need to repaint.

Shutters2

It’s a great time for you to spiff up your curb appeal like I did, and here are the quick steps to a new look. If you begin in the morning on a nice day, you can have your project complete by the afternoon.

First, choose a color from the mouth-watering color palette. I know, it is so hard to decide. The good news is one quart is all you need, with plenty left over for the back door.

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.

DIY How-to: Embellish A Tray with the Tone-On-Tone Metallic Tool Kit

DIY How-to: Tone-on-Tone Metallic Finish on Tray | Modern Masters Blog

Fabulous warm weather is finally here, and the other day I decided to drag my huge, hot citrus-color rug down from the attic. Purchased on a Marrakech trip, I loved how the old rug coordinated with the huge wooden screen that I rusted and stenciled for another Modern Masters DIY blog post. But even with some new pillows, I still craved something simple but special on the plain coffee table.

So back up to the attic to forage for more forgotten treasure. Voila! This very heavy, very boring, very dusty, large tray.

Tone on Tone Metallic DIY Finish | Before Pic of Tray | Modern Masters Blog

This tray is the perfect flat item for using the Tone on Tone Metallic Application Tool Kit! It’s used with the Metallic Paint Collection and Matte Metallics to create a super pretty shimmery and matte metallic paint treatment. The finish adds a lot of interest to the metallic treatment and yet it’s so easy to do.

Tone-on-Tone Metallic Application Tool Kit | DIY How-to: Metallic Finish on Tray by Debbie Hayes of My Patch of Blue Sky | Modern Masters Blog

Along with easy step-by-step instructions, you get the sea sponge roller, a smooth roller, a roller handle, and a paint tray.

Materials for a beautiful Tone-on-Tone Metallic Finish | DIY Decor Accent How-to by My Patch of Blue Sky | Modern Masters BlogSimply choose a Matte Metallic color for the base coat, and then choose the corresponding Metallic Paint to create this Tone-on-Tone Metallic Finish. The Copper Matte Metallic I chose worked nicely with the Copper Metallic Paint, especially I since I am in a summery wild Boho color mood.

Before you start, don’t miss Modern Masters’ quick application video for the Tone-On-Tone Metallic Finish:

SUPPLIES

Copper Matte Metallic (or your chosen Matte Metallic color)

Copper Metallic Paint (or your chosen corresponding Metallic Paint color)

Tone-On-Tone Metallic Application Tool Kit

• Optional: Florence Chalk Paint®, or any water-based paint color

• Painters Tape, small flat paint brush, rags, 220-grit sandpaper

First, I lightly sanded the sheen on the tray with 220-grit sandpaper, then painted 2 coats of Florence Chalk Paint®, which needs no priming. After it was dry, I taped off the edges of the flat bottom area. Then I cut in the Copper Matte Metallic Paint around the edges. This color is a bit sheer, so I let the edges dry and cut in once more to build up the color.

Chalk Paint® and the Modern Masters Metallic Paint Collection | Tray Decor Accent DIY | Tone-on-tone Finish Tutorial | Modern Masters Blog

Then, simply slide the short nap roller onto the frame, and roll two coats of the Copper Matte Metallic color (or your chosen Matte Metallic) for the base coat. Let dry completely between coats.

Clean the tray and the flat nap roller, and switch to the sea sponge roller.

Modern Masters DIY Tone-on-Tone Metallic Paint Finish | How-to on the Modern Masters Blog

Roll on the Copper Metallic Paint (or your desired Metallic Paint color). Be sure to leave open spaces, in order to get a two-tone effect. Blot any excess paint areas with the cloth, if necessary. Let dry.

It’s like magic in a couple of simple steps. The look of the two sheens of paint, combined with the perfect tools, brings the look all together. Wondering about sealer? Since this piece will not be handled, I opted to leave the flat Chalk Paint® as is. You could seal the metallic finish with Modern Masters’ MasterClear® Protective Clear Topcoat that is formulated to specifically protect the Metallic Paint Collection for items or areas that will receive lots of handling.

But, around here, we just might have a kitty curl up in this pretty tray, and call it home.

Spring & Summer Garden Decor How-to with Metal Effects Kits!

How to Patinate Decor Accents with Modern Masters Metal Effects | Spring and Summer Garden Ideas and Inspiration

Spring is here! The cherry and Bradford pear trees are blooming beautifully, and folks are flocking out to their patios, front porches, and decks, to spruce up for the season. The farmers markets are swarming with eager gardeners like me, who start slowly, planting smaller container projects to get inspiring, magically instant gratification. Depending upon where you live in the country, frost can occur late into April and even May, so who wants to risk planting too many tender lovelies too soon?

Garden Accents with Metal Effects Patinas by Modern Masters | How-to DIY Tutorial

One 2-ounce Primer

One 2-ounce Oxidizing Copper or Bronze Metallic Paint or Iron Reactive Paint

You just need a drop cloth or plastic to protect the area you work in, a container, and a paint brush.

Spring and Summer Garden Ideas | Metal Effects Patina How-to | Modern Masters Blog

When I found myself itching for something to paint, I wandered out to our very sad, wintery-looking deck. There, I re-discovered this concrete head, all cold, ugly and forlorn, and she was begging for a new look. I decided on the Blue Patina Finish.

Here are the three easy steps for the perfect patina:

STEP ONE

Metal Effects Kits Garden Project How-to Tutorial by My Patch of Blue Sky | Applying Metal Effects Primer | Modern Masters

Protect surrounding surfaces from spills and overs-pray. Clean your item well, if necessary, and let dry. Prime the surface with 2 coats of the Metal Effects Primer. Allow half an hour between coats, and 2 hours for final drying time.

STEP TWO

Applying Metal Effects Bronze Reactive Paint | How to Patinate Garden Accents How-to by My Patch of Blue Sky on the Modern Masters Blog

Paint the primed surface with 1 coat of Reactive Bronze Metallic Paint and allow to dry half an hour.

STEP THREE

Step by Step Metal Effects Patina How-to | Garden Decor Accent Tutorial by My Patch of Blue Sky on the Modern Masters Blog

Attach the spritzer cap to the Blue Patina Aging Solution bottle. Apply the second coat of Reactive Bronze Metallic Paint, and while the paint is still wet, spray on a light coating of Blue Patina Aging Solution over the entire surface. As the activated surface dries over 30 to 40 minutes, a real blue patina finish will appear.

Just look!

I know you are wondering about sealing outdoor items after you use Metal Effects. While the Rust Finish may require a topcoat (included in the kit), no protection is required for both the Blue and Green Patina Kits. Grab a latte, motor off to your favorite nursery for bright, cheery annuals, and your fabulous mini-garden container looks like a million bucks, with little time, energy, and expense. Truly, the kit is all you need for a small project.

This adorable little chest resides in our long, art-gallery-like entry. It fell off a loading dock years ago, and I happened to come along just in time to scoop it up. Love the plain but elegant curves, and yes, some bumps that I choose to embrace as character. I painted this turquoise and silver look ages ago, but, it’s time for a fresh face.

But with one good arm for now, I required simple, simple, simple steps. Modern Masters has the perfect solution: two sublime metallic paint lines, the Metallic Paint Collection and the Matte Metallics. From the Matte Metallics, I chose Pale Gold and from the Metallic Paint Collection, I chose Platinum. The Matte Metallics have a more matte sheen to their shimmer and using both would achieve a subtle play of light between the two sheens.

All I did to prep for this project was remove all of the drawers and hardware, clean everything with soap and water, and paint two coats of a water-based neutral white to use as a base for the Metallic Paints.

Then I got out two fresh paint brushes. That’s it!

Depending upon your piece, some sanding may be required.

I painted two coats of the Platinum Metallic Paint over the entire piece. Here’s what one coat looks like:

Then, I simply chose areas where I wanted to paint the Pale Gold Matte Metallic, including the top, accents, and drawer fronts. I painted three coats, which dried very quickly.

Though I am a nut about seeking out cool new hardware to freshen up a piece, I could not imagine finding anything that works as well as these heavy glass and silver knobs, found at TJ Maxx.

I feel like our hallway has an entirely new, classy look, using both the Metallic Paint Collection and Matte Metallics, which go a very long way. I have plenty of paint left in my quarts to do several more small projects.

We’d love to see what you do with each paint line. Be sure to share!

Use All Three Metal Effects Kits To Create Drippy Abstract Canvas Art

Create Your Own Patina Art | How to DIY Tutorial on the Modern Masters Blog | Project by Debbie Hayes of My Patch of Blue Sky

Effortless artsy, rusty, crusty effects are all the rage right now, thanks to Modern Masters and their fabulous Metal Effects line. They’ve also recently introduced Metal Effects Kits in Rust, Green and Blue Patinas, available online at TheHomeDepot.com. If you love crusty stuff, like old cars, metal accessories, and even artwork, we are kindred spirits. For years I have been scavenging in the local junkyard for years to grab gorgeous scraps of real copper and rust, made by nature, to incorporate into custom metal artwork for clients.

Effortless artsy, rusty, crusty effects are all the rage right now, thanks to Modern Masters and their fabulous new Paint Oxidizing Finish Kits that come in Rust, Green, and Blue. If you love crusty stuff, like old cars, metal accessories, and even artwork, we are kindred spirits. For years I have been scavenging in the local junkyard for years to grab gorgeous scraps of real copper and rust, made by nature, to incorporate into custom metal artwork for clients.

Now that Modern Masters has debuted these three kits, perfect for one or two smaller projects, I make way fewer trips to the scrap heap. Rust and patina are right at my fingertips, and even though I was a faux finisher for many years, no special skills are required to make most any object look aged.

Everything you need is included in the Metal Effects Kits so you can jump right into creating your masterpiece. Find something cool to paint – a lamp base, a small tabletop, or a garden statue – about any paintable surface will work, like metal, wood, drywall, plaster, or plastic.

I decided to use an 18″ square canvas from Michaels for my quick project. Who doesn’t need another great piece of art to hang, prop on a shelf, or give as a gift, right?

You can do a great project using any one of the kits, but I always love to experiment, so I am using all three of the kits: Rust, Green Patina and Blue Patina. (Modern Masters features great, quick videos using each of the products individually on their YouTube Channel.)

Modern Masters Metal Effects Kits available online at TheHomeDepot.comHERE’S WHAT’S INCLUDED IN EACH KIT, to cover about 18 square feet:

8 ounces of Primer, 8 ounces of Reactive Paint, 10 ounces of Aging Solution, 2 brushes, 2 stir sticks and complete instructions. The Rust kit also includes the recommended Permacoat Xtreme Sealer.

Before you get started, prep the area with a drop cloth and plastic as needed. It’s a good idea not to invite kids and pets since you will be spraying. Make sure your area is well ventilated, too.

USE THE RUST KIT FIRST

Using the Modern Masters Rust kit, paint two coats of Primer.

Some surfaces, such as metal or plastic, may need a bonding primer prior to starting your Metal Effects project. This will ensure your surface is properly prepared. I did not need to use a special primer for my canvas project. Now, brush your first coat of Metal Effects Primer. Let dry and add one more coat. Let dry.

Brush on two coats of iron paint. Let dry.

Brush on a coat of Iron Reactive Paint. Let dry. Brush on another coat and let dry.

Spray the rust activator once, wait 5 minutes and spray again.

In order to allow the activating and patina solutions to drip, I found a basket to prop the canvas on, and added some terry towels to catch the excess drips.

Use the Rust Activator, and spray at the top, about 1/4 of the way down. Wait five minutes, and spray again.

The rust step complete.

Let dry until the magic is complete. Actual oxidation occurs, and If you spray too much, the whole area could turn black, so go easy. Some of my background turned black, which I like, after only one application. You could opt to stop right now and apply the sealer, according to the directions.

USE THE GREEN AND BLUE PATINA KITS TO ADD INTEREST

Use Modern Masters paint oxidizing kits to create artwork on canvas. Tutorial.

FIRST, USE THE GREEN PATINA FINISH, WITH COPPER PAINT

Brush on copper paint, the spray green patina.

About 1/3 of the way down from the top, brush on some Copper Reactive Metallic Paint. I used sort of a zigzag pattern, but anything goes.

Spray the green patina solution.

Spray the Green Patina Aging Solution only over the copper paint area while it is still wet. You can use the mist option, or the stream, or both. Let dry until the green appears.

Switch to the Blue Patina Kit. Down below the green patina, paint a zigzag pattern with the Bronze Reactive Metallic Paint color. While wet, mist or use the stream option of the Blue Patina Aging Solution. Let the patina magic happen.

I worked on this canvas all during the day, while I was running around doing other things. That way, I could let the patina happen, add more of the copper or bronze and solution, until I felt like I was done.

Normally at this point I would follow the proper procedure of adding the Permacoat Xtreme sealer to protect the rust, and keep it from coming on on your fingers and clothes. But for art, I like to leave off the sealer and let nature reign.

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.

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.

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?

My glass fish floats and copper star are the perfect accents.

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!

Glam Garden Accents Using Metallic Paint

Modern Masters Metallic paints glam up metal garden accents | Modern Masters Cafe Blog

We are blessed and cursed with a long, narrow back yard featuring towering poplar trees and a huge party deck that my hubby built years ago. Left untended, the yard can resemble a jungle, with ivy crawling up the trees and ferns taking over everywhere. With so much shade and green, green, green, I do try to break it up with a few treasured garden accents here and there.

How about you? Are there a few items in your yard or garage that could use some revitalization, using your favorite color scheme?

I did a happy dance recently when I discovered a big box of Modern Masters paint goodness on my doorstep! They sent several Metallic Paint Collection colors that I selected, some glazes to play with, and a top coat for outdoor protection that keeps metallic paint glowing.

Check out this color palette of the Metallic Paints. I love that you can purchase small containers, and one bottle goes a really long way.

Modern Masters Metallic Paint Colors |Modern Masters Cafe Blog

I rooted around in our yard to find a couple of items that needed a re-do. Though small, this little metal artichoke snugs in nicely among plants in large pots. She’s cute, but the finish is so expected, right?

The before. Modern Masters Metallic paints glam up metal garden accents | Modern Masters Cafe Blog

I also remembered our very heavy cast iron piece that we mounted on the brick wall on the deck. How sad is this? We have tried to grow pretty plants in this great planter for years and years. This is what it always ends up like. So. Now I am calling the plants quits and converting it to a birdbath. We always have little babies born in spring nests just to the left, in our pergola covered in akebia vines.

I DO know how to fill it with water, LOL.

The before. Modern Masters Metallic paints glam up metal garden accents | Modern Masters Cafe Blog

Time to get creative! I gave both pieces a good hose-down and scrub outside, then primed them with a water-based primer recommended for use with Modern Masters products.

First, let’s revive the artichoke.

SUPPLIES

 

PAINT ON ONE COAT OF PRIMER.

PAINT THE TIP AND BASE USING GREEN GOLD METALLIC PAINT.

Modern Masters Metallic paints glam up metal garden accents | Modern Masters Cafe Blog

The Metallic Paint colors are considered Semi-Opaque or Opaque, so over the white primer you may need more than one coat. The Green Gold was sheer enough that I used two coats to get it to the soft color I was going for.

PAINT APPLE GREEN.

Modern Masters Metallic paints glam up metal garden accents | Modern Masters Cafe Blog

PAINT SAPPHIRE.

Modern Masters Metallic paints glam up metal garden accents | Modern Masters Cafe Blog

Since this is an outdoor item, I didn’t get crazy about perfection. After painting the Sapphire, paint Teal on the leaves just above it. Let dry.

MAKE A SHEER WASH WITH GREEN GOLD METALLIC PAINT AND PAINT ALL OVER THE ARTICHOKE.

Modern Masters Metallic paints glam up metal garden accents | Modern Masters Cafe Blog

Mix the Green Gold Metallic with just a bit of water to create a loose wash. I really just used one thick, runny layer to dirty up the bright colors. I like some drips on pieces like this. Let dry.

BRUSH ON A COAT OF SATIN MASTERCLEAR BEFORE LEAVING OUTDOORS.

Now let’s do the birdbath.

SUPPLIES

 

PRIME ALL OVER WITH LATEX PRIMER. LET DRY.
Priming. Modern Masters Metallic paints glam up metal garden accents | Modern Masters Cafe Blog
This piece was painted with water-based paint, so one coat of latex primer is perfect. Let dry.

 

BRUSH ON 2 COATS OF BLACKENED BRONZE METALLIC PAINT. LET DRY.
Modern Masters Metallic paints glam up metal garden accents | Modern Masters Cafe Blog
Painting metallics on top of this white primer does show brush marks, so I just avoided ugly ones as much as possible.

 

BRUSH ON NATURAL BROWN GLAZING CREAM MIXED WITH FURNITURE & CABINET GLAZING CREAM.
Modern Masters Metallic paints and Glazing Cream glam up metal garden accents | Modern Masters Cafe Blog
In a container, add about 2 tablespoons of Furniture & Cabinet Glazing Cream with just about a teaspoon of Natural Brown Glazing Cream Color. Mix well. Brush on some glaze and work in sections.

 

USE A DRY RAG TO TAP THE GLAZE AND SOFTEN THE LOOK.

Modern Masters Metallic paints and Glazing Cream glam up metal garden accents | Modern Masters Cafe Blog
Turn your hand in all different directions to soften the glaze. Wipe a clean spot of the rag across the raised decoration to expose the color underneath to highlight it. Adding the glaze will tone down the metallic paint and add patina. It will take longer because of the glaze mix but let dry completely.

 

Brush on a coat of Satin MasterClear® Topcoat for protection. (Since this is going to be a bird bath, I only painted and sealed areas just to the water line.)

 

Now it’s time to take these beauties outside. I moved the artichoke around to find my favorite spots.

 

Modern Masters Metallic paints glam up metal garden accents | Modern Masters Cafe Blog

 

I decided I liked to “discover” it in this giant hosta, since the pretty metallic colors jump right out.

 

Modern Masters Metallic paints glam up metal garden accents | Modern Masters Cafe Blog

 

The birdbath is nestled right up against this massive tree, near our little babbling pond. It’s perfectly positioned to awaiting all of the cardinals, owls, and squirrels that pass through. Wonder how long it will be before the raccoons will knock it over. Note to self: now thinking anchoring versus propping is a good thing.

Or, our entry courtyard is calling too. Do you prefer it atop this old, rusty chair?

 

Modern Masters Metallic paints glam up metal garden accents | Modern Masters Cafe Blog

 

The electric metallic green and blues of the artichoke love it here too. The colors seem to jump right out of the shadows. So many possibilities!
