Brilliant metallic colour in a versatile paint!
Roberson Liquid Metals are creamy acrylic colours that can be used on most surfaces including plaster, wood, paper & canvas. The rich, deep colour gives the appearance of metal but it will not tarnish and is not required to be varnished.
The 24 colour range includes 13 shades of gold, brass and bronze; eight shades of silver, pewter and platinum; a steel, a graphite and an interference, glittery colour (called Twinkle).
All colours are intermixable with each other and other acrylic paints. When mixed they add both their colour and their sparkle to other acrylic paints.
The colours are all transparent but in thicker applications they can cover quite well. The paints can be thinned with water and as the paint becomes more transparent the metallic shimmer is still visible. Clean up is with soap and water. If you intend to paint large things, the pots list the paint’s coverage as: 7 square metres per litre.
Great Colour Mixing Possibilities
Two of the 24 colour range are slightly different to the rest and have slightly different prices:
This variation of liquid metals produces colour changing effects with a hint of glitter. The use of different backgrounds will change the effects, for example dark backgrounds will show the glitter properties whereas light backgrounds provide a colour changing effect dependant on angle of view. It can be added to other colours to create a range of interesting effects.
This variation of Liquid Metals differs from other silver shades within the range as it contains aluminium particles – this makes the liquid metal more opaque to provide excellent coverage.
