Creating a rusted iron relief sculpture

I have had my eye on this paint product from Modern Masters and gave it a try on a relief carving made out of HDU that I made for a recent project.

First, you apply the metal effects primer…


Then apply the 2 coats of the iron paint…


Then apply several coats of the rust activator spray. The rust increases with each application…

Now you have a rusted metal sculpture!!! (at least the illusion of one) There is one more step I don’t have a picture of and it’s a clear sealer that prevents the iron from oxidizing any more. I am very pleased with this product.
