FX Rust Paint Metal Base Coat & FX Rust Effect Top Coat (AC & PH)
The FX Rust Paint system is a two-phase system that produces authentic, aged rust effects. It replicates the colours and
unusual textures of metal weathered by nature and can be used to add impact in large outdoor and indoor areas, or
revive decorative sculptures and pots.
Customers should ascertain the appropriateness or otherwise of the FX Rust Paint system by testing the
product/effect on the area to be painted before the commencement of a project. It is suitable for most interior and
exterior vertical surfaces, but not recommended for areas where water pools or ponds. Rust finishes vary and the final
effect will depend on application methods and environmental factors.

pots and metal and timber sculptures.
