Default Suggestions?

So I’m trying to decide on the way I want to finish this. I’m leaning towards the “Sophisticated Finishes” rust look. Has anyone ever done this? I saw Jimmy Diresta do something similar on an MDF sign, ill link the video below. I want that “out on the weather for 50 years iron look.” Plus my detail painting leaves much to be desired.

Bob,
I use the Sophisticated Finishes all the time..
Here's an example of the "Rust" finish...
Not as good as the Sculpt Nouveau product but not as expensive either.

That looks awesome, thanks. How does it react with other paints? Thinking of using one shot and then the rust treatment, what order should I do it in? Can I use an exterior latex with this? That would make my life a bit easier. Don’t know what the acid would do to the paint so now I think I answered my own question....I should do the rust treatment first and then do the paint?

Thanks again

Another vote for sculpt nuveau, bronze with some acid highlites. And if you add color..go milky

Bob,
It works well with all other paints,,as it's paint with particles of metal ( iron ) suspended in it...
The " acid" is a simple acidic solution,,could be vinegar...
It wouldn't affect the paint at all if the paint will well dried..
As for the order of procedures...it really depends on the end result you want but in most cases I patina ( rust ) last,,,but not always..


Michael

Keith Outten has spoken highly of the Sculpt Nouveau products. I haven't tried them yet. I do think you are on the right track by selecting something that looks like "old metal" for this kind of thing...it's going to look awesome!

So I'm about to buy a gallon of the sculpt nouveau "C" bronze coating, it's the one with the hardener. What sold me on it is you can polish it easier then the "B" coating they sell, and I'm also hoping it has a self leveling characteristic so I don't have to worry about brush strokes. I really don't want to put it thru my spray gun, think the cleanup would be a nightmare. Don't even know if my Fuji Mini Mite 4 turbine would spray it that good or even what needle to use, if anyone knows or has tried it let me know. Putting anything with a hardener thru it terrifies me.

I'm thinking about the black patina for it. Any suggestions on the patina would be awesome. I'm getting really excited about this, I was kinda sick to my stomach when I thought I was going to have to paint it. After Rodger's class this November my painting fear might be fixed a bit.

Thanks for all the advice, glad I asked or I would have never known about sculpt nouveau stuff.

Wonder if one of those cheap electric sprayers that people use for house paint would work well. I have never used one for anything though. But you could toss it if it didn't work.
