HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, October 4, 2011 5 HOMELIVING Make statement with latest trend A rust-effect garden wall. DIY SPRING PROJECT How to create a rust- effect feature wall -- perfect for inside or outside as a highlight garden wall Bring out the warmth of the season with something rustic. Make a statement with the latest trend that provides a gorgeous and original rust effect. Here's an easy guide to achieve the ultimate wow factor. Things you need: Rust base paint; rust solution; drop sheet; Paint stirrer; variety of wide (100ml) synthetic brushes and a roller; clean containers and a roller tray; Scotch Blue Painters tape; spray bottle filled with water; overalls, safety goggles and impervious gloves (for applying rust solution); water-based clear coat; spare piece of board for practising application technique. Step 1: Shake well and pour rust base paint into a clean, dry container. Mask off anything that could get painted over and begin cutting in. Apply two coats with a wide brush and a random brush-stroke action. Allow a minimum of 12 hours dry time between coats. Step 2: It is important to wear overalls, impervious gloves and chemical safety gloves. Make sure the area is well ventilated. Once rust base paint is completely dry, apply two coats of rust solution with a wide brush and random brush- strokes. Allow a minimum of eight hours dry time between coats. Start brushing both coats of rust solution in the middle of your wall and work out towards the edges. Make sure to brush right up to the tape. Do not cut in or you will end up with a picture frame effect. Do not overspread the solution. Step 3: Clear coat (optional) Finish with a suitable water-based clear coat.
