Heavy Body Metallic Paints
Metallic Paints manufactured with a high pigment loading of both real metal pigments and pearlescent pigments.
These paints are thickened with thickener chemicals to assist in creating the heavy body but this allows for a cost effective range of heavy body metallic paints that won't break your pocket for a small 30ml tube. These paints are sold in 100ml tubs, not in tubes.
Perfect for impasto techniques. The high paste viscosity means the paint stays where it is placed. Significantly raised effects can be created without any cracking when drying. This is remarkable for a metallic paint at this price but equally amazing is that the paste can still be spread easily, feels light and the dry paint is flexible (slightly rubbery in feel). The paint should be applied with a brush or pallet-knife although interesting texture effects can be achieved with tools such as coarse combs.
Some shrinkage of the paint layer height takes place upon drying but this does not result in cracking. Another big benefit is that the paints dry relatively fast in thick layers so they are usually ready for handling within a day.
The paints have a high sheen and it is not necessary to put a top coat over them as the paints are highly durable and resistant to both water and UV. UV resistance means they are light fast and non-fading and they can be used on exterior features.
The picture shows Azure, Rose Gold, Bright Gold, Malachite and Bright Silver. The colours are identical to the colours in our normal Metallic Paint range so you can view colours there.
