DecoArt Brilliant Turquoise 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 many absorbent surfaces including untreated wood, unglazed ceramic bisque, paper and canvas. Can also be used on metal. For plastic surfaces, you will need to give the surface a tooth, for example by applying a coat of multi-surface acrylic paint, before using the metallic lustre. Alternatively you can achieve a tooth by lightly sanding the surface you wish to use the lustre on. Apply 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.
Sold in a 1oz (29ml) tub attached to a display card.
