Lump is anything but faux.

Over the last week we have talked about rust and all its glory. But what is not so glorious about rust is that it can and will leach a stain in poor weather.

This is not an issue if your rusty masterpiece is in a garden. But if you position a special rusty something over or on pale coloured stones and pavers for example, an unsightly rusty, red and brown stain will eventually leach out from under your beloved piece of art.

If you are actually trying to achieve the rustic, weathered look, by all means enjoy the development of your rusty stain. But if not, never fear. At Lump we have a solution.

Over the years we have developed our very own Faux rust finish. And unlike other Faux rust finishes we do not use iron filings within paint to generate the rusted appearance.

Although this is effective, it too may leach a stain in poor weather. And unlike powder coated rusted effects that have recently come to market, our Faux rust finish is not only matte in appearance, it is also textured.

To develop our Faux rust finish we painstakingly colour matched varied shades of rust to produce a multi-layered application. This is sprayed onto the surface of our work to mimic the look of real rust.

And it is because we apply our Faux rust effect ourselves in the studio that we can offer many varied shades of the rusted look.

Our Faux rust finish is stable and will not leach a stain or produce a dust. And best of all the Lump Faux rust finish will retain the integrity of the metal beneath.

Lump is anything but faux. But we do Faux rust really well.

  • Check the creation of the SodaStream Turtle step by step in the Lump Studio workshop. @dayziart carefully places the rubbish over the skeleton to form the shell and the skin of the turtle. ALL of the rubbish was collect by @dayziart from Aussie beaches. @sodastreamau commissioned this piece as part of #oceanofthefuture a VR display that aims to help us understand the impact our waste is having on our ocean and marine life.  We are thrilled to have been included in this project along with passionate ambassadors @sodastreamau  @plasticfreesophia @cleanupaustralia  @take3forthesea  @joelparko The display is on this week at Circular Quay in Sydney #bubblesfornow  #onebottleforlife  #stoptrashingwaves
  • The Turtle created by @dayziart is positioned on top of a pod which houses a VR experience #OceanOfTheFuture developed and launched by @sodastreamau  this week. The VR experience aims to help us understand how our waste is impacting our oceans and marine life.  The installation is at The Overseas Passenger Terminal at Circular Quay in Sydney. Take your kids, you will want to make difference too @sodastreamau @joelparko  #onebottleforlife  @take3forthesea  @dayziart  @plasticfreesophia  @cleanupaustralia  @mattbarryimages  @elyse.knowles  These guys are all making the change and making a difference #everybitcounts  #BubblesForNow

  • This is a project we are thrilled to have had the opportunity to work on. It’s been under wraps for a while but this week @sodastreamau  launched #OceanOfTheFuture The initiative aims to display the devastating effects and the ongoing impacts of single use plastics on our oceans and marine life.  Our role at Lump Studio was to create the internal structure of a Turtle for @dayziart to cover with found rubbish he collected from the beach and ocean in his home town.  Swipe left, you can see just how much rubbish was collected in only a couple of weeks.  We all know it. It’s time to change our consumption habits. It’s not helpless we can make a difference @sodastreamau  #onebottleforlife  @take3forthesea  @dayziart  @plasticfreesophia  @cleanupaustralia  @mattbarryimages  @elyse.knowles  #everybitcounts #BubblesForNow
  • The “Wire Amplitudes” sculpture would look just as at home if found deep in the ocean.
