MASTERS® TEXTURE EFFECTS™ is a multi-purpose, water based,
acrylic, plaster-like medium that is ideal for raised relief, heavy
distressed textures, stenciling, and for correcting wall imperfections.
It is highly durable, water resistant, and will adhere to most surfaces.
Texture Effects will not shrink or crack while drying, and once cured,
versatile product can be tinted using Modern Masters’s ShimmerStone®
Color Concentrates, SkimStone® ColorPaks, or universal colorants
and exhibits no color loss once dry. This eliminates the need for over
painting. One of the most unique and time saving features of this product
is the ability to self-seal. This gives the decorative painter the option
of glazing or painting the textured surface directly, without the added
time and expense of priming or varnishing.
Effects is water-based and non-hazardous. It contains no lead, mercury,
or other toxic ingredients. The absence of harmful solvents makes Modern
Masters Texture Effects easy and safe to use.
PREPARATION: Newly constructed surfaces should be primed with a 100%
acrylic primer and allowed to fully dry. We recommend Zinsser’s
Bulls Eye® Water- Base Primer/Sealer. Texture Effects will adhere
to sound, clean, and dry surfaces previously painted with a low-sheen,
water based paint. If unsure of the surface, prime first with Zinsser’s
Bulls Eye Water-Base primer/sealer.
Texture Effects can be tinted using Modern Masters’s ShimmerStone
Color Concentrates, SkimStone ColorPaks, or universal colorants. (NOTE:
do not exceed 4 fl. oz. per gallon.) Mix in colorant using a hand drill
with a detachable mixing apparatus on medium speed or on a high speed
shaker. (NOTE: do not shake for more than 5 minutes.)
Texture Effects is used to create a wide variety of beautiful texture
finished on interior walls and ceilings by using various tools and techniques.
It is not intended for use on exterior surfaces. It is normally applied
using a trowel and is perfect for creating raised relief, heavy distressed
textures, stenciling, and to correct wall imperfections. Once dry, it
does not need to be primed and can be overcoated with Modern Masters
products (Metallic Paint Collection™, Metal Effects®, Decorative
Painter’s Products, Venetian Plaster, ShimmerStone®, Theme
Paint™, or Wildfire® Paints) or any water based or alkyd paints.
TIME: Dry times will vary depending on the thickness of the texture,
ambient temperature, and relative humidity. Most basic applications
will dry to the touch within 1 to 2 hours, with a recoat time of 8 hours.
Full cure time is approximately 14 days.
Approximately 90 to 140 square feet per gallon.
UP: Clean tools, brushes, and equipment with warm soapy water immediately
after use. Promptly wipe up any spills and splatters with a damp cloth.
