Faux Rust Technique

If you love rusty things, want instant gratification, and you haven't used Modern Masters Metal Effects Iron Paint and Rust Activator, check out some of the things you can rusty up in no time!

This is one of several resin angels that I have for sale in my etsy shop. I applied two coats of the iron paint, let dry between coats, then applied two coats of rust activator - five minutes between each coat.

Before . . .

After . . .


These are some metal pieces I used the same technique on . . .


and a faux rust background I painted on canvas using the same technique. I used a sea sponge to apply the rust activator to this one . . .


Do YOU have any techniques for quick rusting you would like to share?
