ShinHan professional Metallic Powders can be used to achieve brilliant metallic or pearlescent effects. Consisting of finely ground particles of bronze, aluminium or mica pigments, the highly brilliant metallic sheen will not easily tarnish or fade. They can be applied to various surfaces including canvas, paper, cardboard, wood, clay and more. Mix with water prior to application for watercolours, gouache or poster. For improved adhesion on non-absorbent surfaces, mix with water diluted ShinHan Painting Glue.
