Rusty

WHY CHOOSING RUSTY POWDER?

You love warm natural rust colors. Rusty powder contains real iron dust. That is why it gives the most natural rust tones of all possible colors thatyou can find in nature. Working with Rusty powder is very experimental and the effect really fascinating. The more you work with it, the more you can control and learn how it will react.

FOLLOW THESE STEPS FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS:

Preferably choose a light color Powertex such as Ivory, Yellow Ocher, Terracotta or Red. Cover the object completely with a layer of Powertex of your choice and let dry. Make meanwhile in a cup, a spatulable paste by stirring Powertex + a pinch of 3D Sand, and 10 to 25% Rusty Powder to a mouse gray color. Add a few drops of kitchen vinegar and a splash of water. Mix all of this. Apply a layer of this paste with a brush or palette knife on the object to be decorated. For different color effects, you can also sprinkle a little of the powder into the still wet paste and rub it in. The more Rusty Powder you add, the darker the result. Also, the more vinegar, the darker the result. Fill a spray bottle with water and maximum 50% vinegar. Regularly moisten the object with it. (More vinegar gives a faster and darker rust effect). Let it dry overnight. The full result is visible the next morning.

TIP:

FOR BEST RESULT, ALWAYS use a little Easy 3D Sand in the mixture. You not only get lighter shades of warm tones, but the whole also gets more texture, what makes it look even more like real rust and real metal. That way your work can no longer distinguish itself from a truly rusted object. Please note: if you place the rust objects outside, the surface can also start to rust. Place your object preferably in grass or on the ground and not on tiles or a natural stone terrace. Protect the surface by placing the object on a pedestal.
