This media room in Keystone, Colorado is one of many contemporary finishes in one of our favorite client’s homes. Painting metallic paint on this large of a scale took some patience, as well as a special air-assisted sprayer (HVLP-like) to get a quality finish. We tried a handful of samples using rollers and each sample left lines and markings from the roller naps. We masked off the entire room (including the enormous outer-space light lamp) and got started.
We quickly realized that it would take a light fogging of 3 coats to get the smooth finish we were after. We also applied a water-based polyurethane to bring a more brilliant look to the metallic finish.
Once we completed the last polyurethane coat, the walls almost lit-up from the reflective light on the glass like metallic surface.
