This post is part of a campaign with Modern Masters and LooksiSquare. I was provided with materials for my projects, but all opinions are entirely my own. Without these materials, this post would not have been possible.
This campaign was titled "Shine Big, Shine Small". The idea? To do one big project and then fall in love with the paint so much that we just grabbed something little along the way and made a "bonus" project. This pretty much happens with EVERY project I do, so I thought, "No Biggie!". My only problem? I did a big project. Then I did a small project. Then I did another small project. Then I did a tiny project. Oh and a medium project. Go figure. I am now self titling this post my "Shine Big, Shine small small small small small" project. Ready to rust? Let's dive in!
They are actually fairly nice chairs and we use them out in the yard quite a bit all summer long. I painted them almost four years ago when we moved in this house, but they are definitely starting to show their age. What is funny is that the iron treatment is supposed to make them look "aged", but in a better way. You will see what I mean....
- Acid Effects Primer (Essential to keep rust from actually rusting your furniture!)
- Iron Reactive Paint (ME208 - This is the paint that actually has the metal elements in it!)
- Rust Activator (PA904 - This makes the iron paint RUST in 2 hours!)
- Exterior protective clear coat (You will need this to tone down the rust and protect your finish)
E. I tried these paints on several different materials including metal, plaster and even wood! This whale turned out really pretty when the iron paint and activator were added with no primer coat. The wood grain shows through just a bit, so it is hard to tell whether it is really wood or metal.
