DecoArt Polished Coral Metallic Lustre is a gilding/finishing wax, perfect for home decor and mixed media projects. Perfect for giving projects an aged, vintage, distressed, shabby chic appearance or for something glitzy go for full coverage! Easy to apply to absorbent surfaces such as untreated wood, unglazed bisque ceramic, canvas and paper. Can also be applied to metal. If applying to plastic surfaces you will need to provide a tooth for the metallic lustre to adhere to, such as by applying a coat of multi-surface acrylic paint or lightly sanding the surface before applying the lustre. Apply DecoArt Metallic Lustre with a soft cloth or sponge. You could also use a stippling brush to get into tricky crevices. Quick-drying, water-based, non-toxic.
EXTENDING THE SHELF LIFE OF METALLIC LUSTRE
To achieve optimum performance in application, adherence, and sheen, Metallic Lustre is formulated to be a soft paste. However, it can become more solid over time, depending on the frequency of use and storage conditions. Unlike regular paint, Metallic Lustre can easily be reconstituted or softened with small amounts of water. To extend the shelf life or to create a softer paste, add a few drops of water to the jar and reseal. Let it sit for a few hours or overnight to allow the paste to absorb the water, then stir the paste with a palette knife or plastic knife to ensure that the water is completely re-incorporated. If necessary, repeat this process until Metallic Lustre returns to its original consistency or the consistency you desire.
