                                                              A stunning work of art in the painted metal art collection by artist Nicholas Yust. This four panel piece will add a bright pop of color to any modern space. The textured, colorful panels are placed on sheets of aluminum, adding dimension and contrast to the piece. The graduated rainbow hues are made even more visually interesting by the order in which they are placed. The wavy grind patterns give the impression of water running down the front of the panel. The four panel design makes it easy...

This piece is composed of four square panels of blue, pink, purple and green. The panels themselves have been colored using vibrant colors with pastel properties. The artist custom-mixes the acrylic paints to give them a dyed, stained glass appearance - accentuated by an automotive clear coat for a nice sheen and glossy finish. The artist breaks from his usual brightly hues in these softer Spring shades which have a decidedly feminine feel to...

                                                                                                  All of these colorful metal designs have been hand-painted, and the acrylic paints are hand-mixed to color. It took Nicholas years to develop his metal coloring techniques, and the results that you see here are not much different from what you would expect from a colorful paint job on a car - he even treats all of these designs with an automotive clear coat (same coating used by Lexus on their cars) to finish them off. Thus the 'hot rod' analogy becomes even more applicable!

                                                                                                  Although some of his coloring processes are proprietary, he does share some of the detail of his artistic process here. In a nutshell, the swirls and waves and patterns that you see below are not painted onto the metal panel, but they are in fact grind patterns on the surface of the metal, with semi-transparent acrylic paint layered on top - applied using a touch-up gun and/or airbrush gun. The semi-transparency in the colors allows the metal to take on the colorful acrylic paints, while still permitting light to pass through and reflect off of the surface texture from the grind patterns.

If you have a very specific color that you would like to match, just send us the paint swatch or the Sherwin Williams color code, and we can even mail you a small sample of the actual painted metal in your custom color before Nicholas paints the whole thing.

For example, adding color to a piece that is shown in pure metal, exact-match paint batches (not hand-mixed to visually match, but ordered from the manufacture in an exact color code), etc.
