Montana RUST Effect Spray for the artificial creation of a realistic-looking rust effect for hobby, DIY, and creative projects. (e.g. to give a surface an aged, rusted metal appearance).
- Creates the appearance of rust and oxidization on objects even if not metal. For indoor or outdoor use on many surfaces such as wooden objects and furniture, pre-primed synthetic materials such as polystyrene, or flat surfaces such as on paintings or wall/murals.
- Can be used to create the appearance of age, wear and tear, even if on new materials.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Shake can vigorously for 2-3 minutes before use. Apply at 25cm from your object in thin, even spray strokes. Moving from left to right in a sweeping motion. Cross over from horizontal to vertical if applying multiple coats. Allow 2 minutes between each coat. Depending on the substrate and its context, RUST Effect Spray can be applied as a single color, or both applied spontaneously for a more organic look. When working on non-sealed surfaces, pre-priming with Montana Universal PRIMER is recommended, or Montana Polystyrene PRIMER when working on materials such as Styrofoam. Make sure to seal the Styrofoam surfaces completely! Always test spray on a non-visible area to check the compatibility with your painting surface. For increased durability, apply Montana Matte VARNISH when completely dry. For optimal lifespan, store cans with the nozzle on. The RUST Effect Spray is fast drying and high covering. It can be overpainted when fully dry and cured (after 24h) with Montana GOLD, Montana BLACK, Montana WHITE, Montana ACRYLIC markers as well as customary acrylic paints.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
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.
