Wonderful ways to use metallic spray paint

Metallics, especially copper and bronze, are definitely 'in' this year, so why not grab a can or two of Rust-Oleum metallic spray paint and have some fun!


Rust-Oleum have a great selection of metallic spray paints, both in their Universal and Metallic ranges. Builders stock the entire range of Rust-Oleum products, so you can see at a glance exactly what metallic finish to choose for your project. And using Rust-Oleum spray paint is easy and fun.

Tips for using Rust-Oleum spray paints

◊ Always clean projects and remove any dust before applying spray paint. Greasy fingerprints and grime are your worst enemy, and any dust will mar the finish on your project.

◊ Work in a well-ventilated space. Any spray paint can easily overpower you with fumes. If the opportunity arises and weather permitting, do any spray painting outdoors.

◊ Shake the can well before use - for at least a minute. This is important. Shaking the can ensures that the contents are properly mixed. It's also necessary to shake the can between spraying.

◊ Hold the can approximately 30cm away from the surface of your project. Any closer than this and you risk the chance of overspraying and runs.

◊ Apply a light, even coat of primer or paint and allow this to dry before applying additional coats.

When wanting to add detail to a project make use of stencils. Even scraps of lace or paper doilies can be used to apply an attractive pattern to the spay painting projects. When using stencils, make sure to mask off around the edges to keep the line crisp.

Rust-Oleum Specialty Metallic Spray provides a rich, luxurious finish for furniture and accent pieces. You can apply to wood, metal, plaster, masonry or unglazed ceramic. This spray paint contains real metal leafing flakes.

Use one of the Rust-Oleum range of spray paints in any room in the home to go from drab to fab. Rust-Oleum can be applied to metal, wicker, concrete, wood, vinyl, laminate, plastic, and even glass.
