Pure Metal Pigments
A new special range of powder pigments, Pure Metal Pigments. They are pigments elaborated from real metals, giving them a high degree of realism.
For their application it is recommended to mix them with a small amount of some medium (varnish, paint, pigment fixer, but we especially recommend Master Medium) and apply it by extending it as much as possible onto the surface. An excessive amount of medium can attenuate the metallic effect. An adequate amount of medium will allow the pigments to be airbrushed.
They can be mixed with other colors and paints to add variations or hues. They can be used with both acrylic and non-acrylic paints and mediums and in combination with epoxy resins. They can be also used in combination with accelerating oxidation products to create real oxidation effects. They can be polished after application with something smooth. It is recommended to apply onto matte surfaces for a better grip.
– Each bottle includes 30ml of the product by volume. Due to the high compaction capacity of these pigments, when opening the can, it could give the visual sensation of including less product. If the bottle is shaken before use, the pigment will decompress, filling the 30ml offered volume.
– These pigments are not toxic, but you should avoid inhaling their dust.
– Keep the bottle tightly closed in a cool and dry place to avoid its oxidation.
– Once painted or sealed with a medium, even acrylic, it will not rust.
