Natural Rust Painting Technique

By:

This beautiful leaf platter only looks like natural rust – it's really a painted finish that is quick and easy to apply. Try the Natural Rust Painting Technique from Krylon on any home decor project!

Natural Rust Painting Technique

Materials:

  • Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Primer - Ruddy Brown (#51317)
  • Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Paint - Georgia Clay (#53531)
  • Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Paint - Black (#51602)
  • Decorative Leaf Platter or Project of your choice
  • Spray bottle of water
  • Newspaper
  • Disposable rubber gloves

Surface Preparation:

  • When working with unfinished wood, prepare your surface by sanding smooth and wiping clean with a tack cloth. Apply a primer to seal the surface.
  • When working with bare metal, be sure surface is free of rust and oil. Apply a primer to seal the surface.
  • When working with plastic, glass or ceramic, lightly sand surface with fine grain sandpaper and wipe clean with a tack cloth. This will help the paint to adhere better to these smooth surfaces. Apply a primer to further improve adhesion.

Steps:

1. Place platter on newspaper to protect work area.

2. Spray 1 coat of Ruddy Brown Primer on platter front, back and sides, following manufacturer's instructions. Let dry.

3. Spray entire platter with Georgia Clay, following manufacturer's instructions. Let dry.

4. Spray water over entire platter.

5. Spray a light mist of Flat Black over water to cause spots and imperfections similar to rust. Let dry thoroughly.

6. For added protection of your finished project, spray several light coats of Krylon® Matte Finish or Satin Finish as a final step. For projects that will be used outdoors or near a window, use Krylon® UV-Resistant Matte Finish.
