Transforming Exterior Lights with Modern Masters Metallic Paints!

Transform your Exterior Lights with Modern Masters | By Living Rich On Less

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!

Modern Masters Copper Penny Metallic Paint & MasterClear® Topcoat | By Living Rich On LessEquipped 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.

This paint has an impressively realistic copper finish,” says Susan.
We think she did a phenomenal job turning her ordinary porch light into an extraordinary exterior light fixture!

She picked a gorgeous copper color for her porch’s design scheme. Copper Penny ties in all of the colors and wood tones of her porch so well! Feel free to read more about her read more about her easy, thrifty metallic exterior light makeover project on her blog, Living Rich On Less.
