METALLIC COLORED POWDER CHARACTERISTICS
- Metallic colored powders retain the look and feel of metals.
- Unsealed, Pale Gold, Brass, Copper, Bronze and Statuary Bronze will patina or oxidize and give a rich antique look to your artwork.
- Metallic colored powders can be annealed in the oven. This works on items which will not burn at 300 degrees F for 5 minutes. This technique lends itself well to polymer clay.
- Can be blended to create faux finished surfaces and create faux patinas.
- Mixing with liquid mediums creates the consistency and look of metallic paint.
- Will take on the characteristics of the medium they are mixed with, whether it is a gloss, flat, frosted or iridescent finish.
- Work in a well ventilated area. (For added protection wear a dust mask.)
- Use a small scoop or spoon to remove powder versus pouring the powders from the jar.
- When using a brush to apply powders to a surface, use a damp brush. This keeps the powder on the brush until time of application.
- When possible, mix small amounts of metal colored powders with liquid to liquefy the powders using a palette knife to avoid clumping.
- Mix only the amount that is going to be used immediately. Certain water-based sealers will cause the metallic colored powders to tarnish if left in the liquid form.
