About this Product

The Paint Couture metallic paints are specially designed for use on furniture and cabinets. They have a large amount of acrylic resin and will dry very hard and durable. They are available in quarts, pints and in a 4-ounce size, and can be a beautiful enhancement on knobs and pulls on furniture.

PREP FOR SUCCESS

Clean all surfaces to remove dirt, oil, grease or other contaminates. Clean with Krud Kutter Gloss-Off or Simple Green following the package directions. Remove wax with Mineral Spirits.

Shake or stir these metallic paints well before use and during use.

Paint base coat of Paint Couture in a color similar to the metallic paint, for example, use British Grey under Silver Star.

APPLICATION

Metallics dry quickly so a well loaded brush is key. Use a synthetic brush and apply the paint in a long fluid stroke in one direction. Avoid stopping and starting as this will show a brush mark. Brush the metallic paint on the surface all in the same direction. On a tabletop or on an item that is heavily used, a topcoat of Couture Topcoat is recommended. Wait 24 hours after applying the metallic paint prior to applying the topcoat.

IN STENCILS

If using a Mylar stencil spray the back of your stencil with Stencil Ease or a repositionable Stencil Adhesive and allow to dry at least 5 minutes. Vinyl adhesive stencils are an option as well, they are made to stick to the surface, no need to apply adhesive. Place the stencil on the furniture and secure with Blue Tape. Apply with a foam roller or a stencil brush. When using the foam roller have a piece of cardboard handy and off load your brush or roller to remove excess paint so it will not bleed under your stencil. To help prevent bleeding under the stencil begin rolling with light pressure at first. Cleanup is with soap and water.

DETAIL ACCENTS

These metallic paints are most notably designed to highlight furniture detailing. Use them as a metallic accent on top of carved furniture details and on spindles, or over painted Embossing Medium. They are beautiful dry brushed, too!

SHEER EFFECT

These products may be thinned with 10% water for a more transparent look. Once thinned, brush on top of Paint Couture for a sheer sparkle. If desired, a glaze can be created by adding 1-part Sheer Glazing Medium to 1-part metallic paint, therefore the working time of the paint will be increased.

OVER GLAZE EFFECT

Glaze Couture can be brushed over metallic paints after 12 hours.
