Patina Lamps transformed with Modern Masters Metal Effects
I am excited to show you how I transformed my lamps with Modern Masters Metal Effects Patina paint. Calling what I did painting is a tad off. The Metal Effects is actually an oxidation process to create beautiful faux patina finishes on any paintable surface.
As you will see their kit transformed my lamps into patina Goddesses.
Modern Masters are “The Alternative to Ordinary.” I wholeheartedly agree.
Their line of paints are very different, to say the least, and not limited to Metal Effects.
Here is a list of Modern Masters line of products:
Metallic Paint Collection
Front Door Paint
Metallic Plaster and Shimmerstone
Decorative Painters Products
JWR Artist Acrylics
Something for everyone and more!
I found the green patina to be more like a turquoise.
I have two metal lamps with a nice style, but too dark to go with my new home decor. The lamps were stored away in the basement and became perfect subjects to be transformed with Modern Masters Metal Effects Patina paint.
There are 3 colors. Blue Patina, green patina and rust finish. For the transformation of my lamps, I picked Green Patina and could not be happier with the results as a first time user. I am grateful to this gold mine of a paint company, Modern Masters, who were kind enough to send me the Metal Effects Kit and all opinions are 100% my own.
The first step is to paint your piece with the primer and let it dry for 12 hours or so.
Next paint a coat of oxidizing Copper and wait half an hour and paint another coat. While the second copper paint coat is still wet, spray the Patina aging solution. It reacts with the metal particles in the copper paint and zooms up the oxidization process creating a stunning patina finish. It’s brilliant what this paint system does. I have to tell you too that after spraying the aging solution it was fun to watch the old world style creation come to life before my eyes so quickly.
The key is the aging spray solution. I found that spraying a light mist in a circle cloud pattern and not being in a hurry created the best effect.
The coverage of the primer and copper paint was like a dream.
MODERN MASTERS METAL EFFECTS LAMPS AFTER:
My lamps now have slightly different patina patterns. As you can see no two items will turn out the same and that is what I adore about Modern Masters Metal Effects.
I also chalk painted the lamp shades white and they turned out nice.
If you have lamps or really anything that is paintable, don’t hesitate to get Metal Effects oxidizing paints or any of the other metal and artistic paint systems available. See all Modern Masters products here.
I am thrilled with how my lamps turned out. I hope my lamps inspire you to create something special too with Metal Effects.
I am pleased my dark lamps are now something special to be displayed and kept for many years.
This is a paint I will use again and again. As I look around I have many ornate candlesticks (oh those will be beautiful), a chair, containers and a large floor lamp I could transform with Modern Masters Metal Effects.
