Neil G – Container Painted in Agricultural Oxide

Red Oxide Primer - Container Paint

September 2020 Winner – Neil G

The Project – Painting a farmhouse roof, transforming a rusty outbuilding and creating a new outbuilding from a shipping container. Painted in Red Oxide Paint and Brunswick Green agricultural oxide.

“I bought both the green & the red paints to do two outbuildings one of which you will see ive illustrated in its before & after state. The other is of my house the roof of which i intend to replace like for like & then repaint in the red. As you will see the building is something of a classic as far as a traditional west highland croft house goes & its my intention to keep it that way. Im very happy with the quality of the paints you have supplied me & the green colour is perfect…”

Agricultural Oxide - A long oil based protective metal coating, suitable for all types of interior/exterior substrates. It has excellent covering power and can be used on block work, steel sheets, asbestos sheeting as well as wood. It has a good gloss finish, gives protection against weathering and corrosion.

How the end result was created

Contrasting colours of agricultural oxide were chosen to produce a final effect which was creative and blended in beautifully into the surrounding landscape. We felt that this project represented a good colour choice, thorough preparation and extremely creative use of materials to produce a really innovative result!
