Mona Lisa Metal Powder gives the true look of metal in any mixed medium. Finely ground metal powders are used as a metallic pigment that retain the look and feel of metal when mixed with a binder. Powders can be blended to create faux finished surfaces and faux patinas. Metal powders take on the characteristics of the medium they are mixed with, whether it is a gloss, flat, frosted or iridescent finish. True metal powders have a brilliance that is not achieved with Mica Powders. While it is best to use an oil base to mix, water based sealers work well and will not tarnish metal powders. Metal Powders™ can also be annealed in the oven. This works on items, which will not burn at 300 degrees for 5 minutes. This technique lends itself well to polymer clays, glass and metals. Metal Powders™ are best used on surfaces that are intricate and where regular metal leaf techniques can not be easily applied.
