The new Montana RUST Effect spray now available - for the illusion of rust and oxidization. Ideal for hobby, DIY, or creative projects. Apply as a single color, or both together as desired for an organic look. Can be used on different surfaces such as paper, cardboard, primed canvas, wood, glass, metal, ceramics, porcelain, stone, acrylic, and other paintable materials. The rust effect is created by a nitro-combi formulation that mimics the appearance of oxidized. Apply RUST Effect Brown, and Brown Orange on top of each other for a more organic appearance. Rust Effect can be top coated and combined with Montana GOLD, Montana ACRYLIC markers, and customary acrylic paints once completely dry. Pre-priming is required for application on polystyrene (Use Montana Styrofoam primer and make sure to seal the surface completely). Color as shown by the donut on the can. USE: Best working temperature between +10°C and +25°C. During application, protect the object and the surrounding area from spray mist. Surfaces should be dry, clean of dust, and oils before application. Shake can well for 2-3 minutes. Remove lid before use. For best results apply at 25cm from the object. Apply in thin even layers, in a sweeping motion with at least 2 min drying time between each pass. Allow 24h curing time before applying other coatings. Always test spray on a non-visible area to check the compatibility of lacquer or paint.

FAQ
FAQ

What is Montana RUST EFFECT Spray 400ml and how does it work?

Montana RUST EFFECT Spray 400ml is a high-pressure paint coating, that is applied to create the appearance of rust, oxidization, and aging on many surfaces. The Montana RUST EFFECT Spray 400ml is available in Orange Brown and Brown. Each color can be applied singularly if desired, or together in a stain-like appearance for a more organic rusty look. Color is shown by the donut on top of the can.

How does Montana RUST EFFECT Spray 400ml work?

Montana RUST EFFECT Spray 400ml can be applied to many surfaces such as concrete, stone, metal, wood, walls, hard plastics, primed cardboard, and polystyrene. We recommend Montana Universal PRIMER for unprimed surfaces, Montana Plastic PRIMER for plastics, and Montana Polystyrene PRIMER for foam-based materials. Apply in thin even coats, in a sweeping motion from left to right. Repeat as desired and cross over from horizontal to a vertical application when applying multiple coats.

How do I start using my Montana RUST EFFECT Spray 400ml spray can?

Shake the can vigorously for 3 minutes ensuring you can hear the mixing balls moving freely. Remove the clear plastic lid from the top of the can. Turn your can away from any objects (or into a test surface) and trigger the nozzle to test. If the paint is flowing freely, you can start painting.

Which surfaces can I use my RUST EFFECT Spray 400ml on?

Montana RUST EFFECT Spray 400ml can be used on many primed surfaces such as concrete, stone, metal, wood, walls, hard plastics, primed cardboard, and polystyrene, etc. Pre-priming with Montana Styrofoam PRIMER, Plastic PRIMER, or Universal PRIMER where applicable is required.

How long does Montana RUST EFFECT Spray 400ml take to dry?

The drying time for Montana RUSTV EFFECT Spray 400ml varies depending on the substrate, coatings it is applied to, ambient temperature, and levels of humidity. Generally, it is possible to be touch-dry after 15-20 mins, dry in 6 hours and cured after 24 hours.

How do I achieve the best rust effects with my Montana RUST EFFECT Spray 400ml?

The best rust effects can be created when the can has been shaken for 3 mins, on pre-primed surfaces that are clean, dry, and free of dust and oils. Subject to the substrate surface and its original color, apply RUST EFFECT Spray in their single colors Orange Brown and Brown, or in a stained look to imitate real organic rust. To take the effect further, apply your favorite Montana GLITTER Spray or metallic pigments for a more metallic look.

Will my RUST EFFECT Spray cause the onset of real rust? 

Rust can only form on metal surfaces. When applied to other materials, the Montana RUST EFFECT Spray will only create the illusion of rust. When applied on metal, its application will add an extra layer of coating onto the surface, assisting in slowing down the onset of rust and oxidization.

Can I apply RUST EFFECT Spray 400ml to only parts of a surface or object?

Yes. As with real metal, rust may only occur on certain parts of a surface, subject to their exposure to water, salts,  and oxygen. We suggest observing various metals in your surroundings for inspiration as to where, and how much rust usually occurs naturally.

Will the Montana RUST EFFECT Spray 400ml work with metallic colors?

Montana RUST EFFECT Spray 400ml will work over metallic colors short term however, the adhesion is not guaranteed long term, and the paint may detach from the substrate over time.

How far should I hold the can away from the substrate while painting?

Optimum distance from substrate is normally 25cm depending on your task. Thin, even layers are optimal, applying from left to right in a sweeping motion.

Can I paint over my RUST EFFECT Spray 400ml with other paints?

Yes. You can apply other paints such as Montana GOLD, Montana BLACK, Montana WHITE, Montana ACRYLIC markers as well as customary acrylic paints over the RUSTB EFFECT Spray 400ml once it has had 24hours to cure.
