Who Is Modern Masters?

About Modern MastersModern Masters is the world's number one supplier of high-end, specialty water base paint products in Metallic Paints, Oxidizing Finishes, Architectural Textures, Theme Paints, Blacklight Paints, Glazes, Varnishes, Crackles, and Theming products for Architects, Designers, DIY, Contractors, and Decorative Painters.

Modern Masters was founded by James W. Rogers, back in 1962, in the San Fernando Valley CA, under the name Custom Paint & Chemical Co, Inc. It was his belief that they should create products for specific niche industries that would not compromise on quality and would relate to the premise that “you pay for what you get”. For the next 25 years he produced custom coatings for the furniture, decorative accessory, residential lighting and wall décor industries.

During the late 80’s when a recession was building up steam, the furniture industry faltered and they looked for an alternative marketplace for their products. They entered the fine artist materials industry with their water base acrylic artist colors in revolutionary “clear” containers so customers could see the quality of the products right through the packaging. This line of products was registered under the name Modern Masters artist acrylics in 1989 and is still sold today in retail art material stores across the US.  

Modern Masters Inc. has taken a leadership role in the Decorative Painting market by offering new and innovative products. As a result, they are now recognized as the number one supplier of high-end, specialty water base paint products in the world.
