- Studio Finishes Latex Metallic Glaze is designed to produce beautiful metallic special effects.
- Easy to apply.
- Resists spattering during application.
- Produces a glimmering, translucent metallic lustre. NOTE: Translucent nature makes achieving an opaque finish difficult requiring multiple coats.
- Soap and water clean up.
- Dries quickly.
Surface Preparation: Surfaces to be finished must be clean, dry and free of wax, grease, scaling paint and mildew. Hard, glossy areas should be dulled with fine grit sandpaper to ensure proper adhesion.
Application: Apply Latex Metallic Glaze over the base coat color in manageable (3’ x 3’) irregularly shaped sections, being careful to maintain a wet edge between sections to prevent lap marks. Since the final appearance of your project will be influenced by the base coat color and the application technique, experiment first on an isolated area or sample board to be certain the desired effect is achieved. In most faux finishing techniques the application of the glaze with a brush, roller or by spray is not the final step as these application methods do not normally provide the desired texture. In the final step the wet glaze is commonly re-textured with a sponge, lint free rag, plastic bag, pouncing brush or other tool to create a uniform distribution and the finished texture. Thinning is unnecessary, but a small amount of water may be added to obtain desired application properties. Never add solvents and only use in conjunction with appropriate Benjamin Moore® products according to label directions.
Base Color: Finishes recommended for base color are Regal Select Eggshell (549), Regal Select Pearl (550).
ReviewsMichael WayThis is an excellent product. It was the perfect solution to our design criteria. We are Pipe Organs builders and as such we sometimes do paint decorations on pipes. If you want a faily convincing substitute for gold leaf this might be just the thing.
