Fleck stone spray paint incorporates a natural colored paint with grit so that the finished coat hardens with texture resembling small bits of stone. This type of paint works well for patio furniture finishing, outdoor equipment and decorative pieces. It does not provide a compatible finish for objects that require smooth surfaces for comfort or use. Thus, the use the paint remains limited, despite its novelty. However, a crafter can be creative with the product using a bit of ingenuity.
Fleck stone paint makes a great paint finish for items that get a lot of attention. Stereo speakers, amplifiers, novelties items, vases, book cases and other movable objects that typically catch the eye in living space make good subjects for coating. To produce a good coat, its advisable to sand the item first if possible. Then a base coat of primer should be applied prior to the fleck stone paint. Once the fleck stone layer is sprayed on, a top clear coat can be applied as well to provide a final durability layer, giving the object a unique finish unlike solid color furniture.
Fleck stone paint creates a unique look for rooms, but a good coating will eat up quite a number of spray paint cans to complete one wall. One can of specialty spray paint can cost anywhere from $5 to $10 a can. For night clubs, specialty rooms, restaurants, and customer waiting rooms, fleck stone works well but should be used sparingly. Instead of using the paint as a base, working the style in as an accent will make it stand out better. The approach will also be kinder on your wallet, requiring far less spray paint.
Model and Toy Finishing
Fleck stone paint comes in a number of natural colors, making it versatile for accenting and improving the final paint job on toy models and sets. For the model builder, being able to make a model or toy setting a bit more realistic makes the finished product that much better. With the ease of spray, a modeler can finish a model set faster with far less time spent on trying to make ground and landscape detail. Instead, the paint does this automatically as it sprays out with texture.
Cheap Holiday Props
For Halloween, nothing displays the season better than a homemade graveyard in your front lawn. However, most people aren't going to chisel out monuments for one day of the year.
