Unlike metallic-colored craft paints, this metallic glaze actually contains real metal particles. Developed for use by interior designers to create stunning faux finishes, Metallic Glazes contain more metal than the products found in craft stores and cost less. The water-based latex glaze paints give the painted surface a coating of real copper alloy metal. The surface may be further treated with a patina solution that will age or patina the metal in the paint to various shades of blues, greens, and blue-greens. In addition, the patina solutions will also work on real metal surfaces as well.
How to use Metallic Glaze Paint: Stir or shake the bottle to mix the paint thoroughly before using. Use the metallic paint directly on the surface or on top of a primer for better adhesion and coverage. (*I usually undercoat the area with regular craft paint of a similar color to provide better coverage.) Next, apply the glaze paint in two (or more) thin coats. Patina solutions should be added when the final coat is still wet. Metallic glaze paints may be mixed to create your own custom metallic color.
*Because they contain real metal, the glazes will eventually tarnish naturally – but the addition of a patina solution will dramatically change the appearance.
