Here is the finishing process step by step.

The metal primer is applied by spray
  • Application of metal primer coat
Primer metal coating is a coating layer that is used to cover the iron. The metal coating is mainly used to cover the metal surface and prevent the corrosion. This layer also serves to build better adhesion between the metal with the NC coating applied thereon
The primer metal is sprayed evenly to paint the overall metal surfaces. Let it dry for few minutes.

Texture paint is applied by brush

In this finish, i used the texture effect to make the more antique looked and more life impression. The texture paint is applied by brush to the overall surfaces. The texture paint should be applied carefully. The texture pattern will determine the finishing looked resulted. Applied the texture paint randomly but consistently to make the texture effect evenly blend and balance on the overall surface.

A good sanding is needed to the texture to reduce the sharpness of the texture effect to make the smooth surfaces.
