Erosion Catalyst. Produce your own paint story with the Rust Activator Solution. Apply the activator solution over our Artisan Rust Effect paint wherever you want to introduce texture, depth and character. The Rust Activator and Rust Effect system make for a realistic and achievable industrial style in any scheme, apply to accessories or use full coverage to make a statement wall.
Preparation and Application: Details on how best to prep your surfaces and apply this paint can be found in our Artisan Rust Effect article here or in our Artisan Rust Effect Technical Data Sheet here.
Method of Application: Allow 12 hours of dry time for the Rust Effect paint and then use a brush to apply 2 coats of the Rust Activator solution over the dry Rust Effect paint. The effect will immediately begin to develop within 20 minutes and continue to do so over time, similar to real rust.
Please note that if you wish, you can seal the painted surface to ensure no residue comes away from the wall by using Craig & Rose Furniture Effect Wax. Using wax to seal the wall will slightly alter the finished effect so we suggest to test this on a small section first.
