The line is also versatile as you can use it for both residential, hospitality and commercial projects on both the interior and exterior. We’ve rounded up some of the latest exterior Metal Effects projects we’ve spied to inspire your own outside projects for the summer and fall!

Metal Effects Rust Finish on Building Exterior | Project by Raul De La Vega | Modern Masters Cafe BlogDecorative artists who work on exterior projects brave the weather and heights to create incredible facades. This was the case when Raul De La Vega enhanced a building exterior in Mexico with the Metal Effects Rust Finish. He says, “This project was not an easy task, but with your fine products and dedication it was possible”. We love the results!

Is your mind reeling with creative Metal Effects possibilities? We hope so! If you are using the patinas to enhance projects, we recommend protecting the Rust Finish with the Permacoat Xtreme, a protective sealer and topcoat made specifically to complement it. For the blue and green verdigris patinas, we recommend not topcoating them and leaving them to continue patinating naturally.
