Using Schmincke Oil Bronze Powders and Bronze Medium you can create truly metallic oil colours
Paint liquid gold, silver and copper colours onto your oil painting!
Made with genuine metal pigments in the following colours: Rich Gold, Rich Pale Gold, Pale Gold, Copper, and Silver.
Schmincke Oil Bronzes are fine, dry powders and need to be mixed with the Bronze Medium to make an iridescent metal effect paint. Mix 3 parts Oil-Bronze powder and 2 parts Bronze Medium with a painting knife or your brush shortly before application. The metal is shinier if you mix the powder and medium right before use. If required you can thin with solvent.
The metal paint dries wipe- and water-resistant, just like regular oil paint. It adheres even better if you use more bronze medium. Colour layers remain soluble to solvents after drying, like regular oil paint. Paint directly on oil paintings or other pre-primed surfaces, such as wood, metal or gypsum. When used on absorbent surfaces, it is recommended to apply an additional first layer of solvent-thinned bronze medium.
