To achieve an authentic rust effect, prepare by first applying two coats of Dulux Rust Effect Base Paint.

Rusted appearance will begin to develop within hours and will continue to increase over time. To accelerate the rusting effect, lightly spray the surface with water two or three times between coats (whilst drying). Individual results will vary due to the application method and environment. Rust residue may be rubbed off when touched. Rust run-off may stain adjacent surfaces. To avoid rub-off and run-off seal with one coat of Berger® Jet Dry® Stone and Paving Sealer in natural finish. mixed with water at a 1:1 ratio. Note: a clear coat will change the appearance of the rust effect.
