Metallic 12 pack , paint. These metallics are BEAUTIFUL !!!!! Use MX54 medium which is a drying medium.
Instructions are below the list of colors.
Metallic Powder Application
White piece of paper (8 x 10)
Tape ( blue auto tape)
MX54 medium (or drying medium)
Mop brush (or very soft brush)
*Note: Since Metallic must be fired at 014, this process is fired first BEFORE painting, textures or gold.
Place white paper on work area.
Tape off area(s) or use Resist on your porcelain where you want Metallic.
Use a Synthetic brush to apply the MX54 medium (or drying medium) on the area. Wait a few minutes then use a sponge to pounce the area until the drying medium makes a tacky sound.
Quickly sprinkle the Metallic powder thick on the tacky drying medium and then with a cotton ball GENTLY press straight down onto the Metallic powder which is on top of the drying medium. Do NOT push or twist the metallic powder unless you want the effect of swirls or lines.
From your porcelain piece pour the loose Metallic powder onto the white paper, taping porcelain a little. With the Mop brush ( or very soft brush) GENTLY brush any excess powder off piece. Make sure not to scratch with the brush into the Metallic powder which has adhered to the drying medium on porcelain.
Let porcelain sit with Metallic for 30-45 minutes to dry completely. The dry time depends on weather.
The Metallic powder on the white paper may be funneled back into the bottle for future use.
Use alcohol to clean off areas which you do not want to have metallic with Q-tips.
Pull off tape
Fire at 014 / 840 degrees
Clean brushes with warm water and mild soap for water base drying medium or turpentine if used with oil base drying medium. (note: MX54 is oil based so use turpentine when cleaning or thinning)
