Modern Masters Metal Effects Reactive Metallic Paints
Step 1 of the metallic finish process, Metal Effects Primer seals the wood surface and prevents contaminates from leaching from the wood into the metal finish. Required for use with all metallic paints. Apply with a sponge or brush.
With Modern Masters’ family of water-based reactive metallic paints, you can create turnings with an ancient appearance or combine the natural beauty of wood with the look and feel of a metallic surface to create a stunning piece that leaves others wondering how you made it. Add a pinch of creativity such as beading, texturing or carving and you're on your way to creating great looking turnings that are uniquely you.
Using Modern Masters’ reactive metallic finishes is simple and easy. Simply apply the primer to a sanded bare-wood surface, apply 2 coats of metallic paint (lightly sanding between applications), spritz the surface with the aging solution of your choice and let it oxidize. For those who want to discover the limitless possibilities of reactive metal finishing, the process can be as simple or complicated as you like with even greater benefits as you explore the possibilities.
Note: Modern Masters coatings should not be used on turnings that will be handled frequently or that come in contact with food or other metallic items such as rings, etc. Use only on decorative turnings.
