Product Spotlight – Modern Master’s Oxidizing Paint

Creating a beautiful metallic finish has never looked better, or has been so cost effective, as with the Modern Masters Metal Effect line of oxidizing paints. Instead of taking on the huge project of replacing fixtures, pipes, downspouts, gutters, railings and more with expensive real copper, think about refinishing them with oxidizing copper paint. We recently had a residential painting project that included Modern Masters oxidizing copper paint over their exterior pipes and gutters, we love the finished look!

This product is a water-based, low VOC formula that contains real metal particles and when exposed to the elements, will naturally tarnish over time. When used with the Modern Masters Patina Aging Solution, the authentic patina effect can be expedited for faster results. It has applications on various surfaces, such as metal, wood, drywall, plaster, and even plastic. It becomes increasingly popular for interior and exterior fixtures, such as walls, mouldings, trim, lamp posts, furniture, or picture frames. The finish will initially have a flat/matte finish before oxidizing.  

In a video detailing the process of using Modern Masters Metal Effects on a piece of plastic décor, the patina process in beautifully shown when the oxidization is sped up. The plastic horse was painted by professionals at Peek Brothers Fine Home Painting.

What Recent Customers Are Saying:

Todd & Annabel Reis:

“ The first positive about working with Ville was that they were able to get into our house very quickly to do the work. The time frame was very important to us. From the day they got here to the day they left they followed a schedule and were on time for each day’s start and finish. We are so happy with the end result. Communication was great and there was an opportunity for dialog with us that kept us informed. From Steve to Heath to Jess, everyone who worked on the project for us was amazing”

Job in the Spotlight: Dorazio Home

A recent job that we are very proud of was our work for repeat clients, the Dorazios. We did a full repaint of the home’s exterior which included extensive prep work sanding and repairing peeling paint. Because of the home’s shape, a number of different sized ladders were used, as well as a “chicken” ladder that hung over the peak of the roof to give our team access to reach difficult trim and dormers for painting. This made for an interesting and exciting project!

All wood siding was color matched from their brand new pool house to embassy green (#1523) by Benjamin Moore High Build Low Lustre paint. The wood trim was painted to match the existing color, with white Benjamin Moore High Build Soft Gloss. By using a new color on the siding and the same white on the trim, this home went through a major modernization that better reflected the owner’s current taste. We love the embassy green used on the siding which was predicted by our color specialist to be one of the trending colors in 2022!

Moving to the back of the home, the rear stucco was color matched and repainted to refresh the area. We also recoated the grey color on the rear railings and decking to provide a great update to the area. What gave the most improvement  in the back was painting the deck and lattice work to match each other in Mahogany with a Benjamin Moore Arborcoat solid stain. Although the colors here are different from the home siding, they all still compliment each other beautifully.

We are proud to say that the Dorazios love their beautified home by Ville Painters and our team was so happy to work with them once again!
