Our creative customers are THE BEST – and we love seeing all of the Modern Masters projects shared with us via our social sites. We stopped in our tracks when Jennifer Gibson started sharing images of a room she was working on. Jennifer has had a 25 year career in medical sonography but her creative side came roaring out in full force when she wanted a turquoise gem look for her studio floor. Metal Effects to the rescue!
Jennifer began with a clean concrete floor and then applied two coats of the Metal Effects Primer.
Jennifer then began layering the Metal Effects Reactive Metallic Paints and Patina Aging Solutions and Activators until she achieved the turquoise gem look she wanted. She finished the floor with the Permacoat Xtreme topcoat to seal the oxidation process as well as a durable floor topcoat. She shares, “I put roughly 18 hours into this spread out over a ten day period. It was a lot of fun!”
Did we mention Jennifer has two zebras? Yes, she does! Their names are Zee and Zsa Zsa and they are adored members of the family. They supervised her project – and did a fantastic job. Are you ready for the final results?
Gorgeous so far, right?
The wall art made of plywood was also patinated with Metal Effects. Jennifer’s friend Elise Gregory also helped refine her decor.
What does Jennifer think? “Thank you guys for the magical Metal Effects paints!! I really love my end results!! Since the floor was concrete and the wall art is plywood it really was a different painting experience for each one. This room feels so good and has such a great energy that its going to be really hard for me to want to do anything in it. Zee and Zsa Zsa love the room, too! Now…on to my next project!!!” Something tells us all that Jennifer does is special. We can’t wait to see what she dreams up.
UPDATE! Ms. Gibson was kind enough to recreate the finish via the wood wall art project. Here’s the Turquoise Gem Patina Wall Art How-to. Have an inspired day!
