Blue Pearl Metallic Pearlescent Glazes are quite translucent in nature allowing the background color to reflect through the finish. As a result, the color perceived is a combination of the background color reflecting through coupled with the color of the metallic glaze. This allows the accomplishment of virtually limitless subtle or bold elegant color with one Metallic Pearl Glaze by changing the background color. Simply roll the glaze on over a good latex paint such as a semi-gloss and pad or pounce with an ordinary piece of plastic to break the glaze up and allow to dry. We do not recommend use over a flat latex because "flats" are porous and may cause the glaze to soak in. Use Perfetto Canvas White, one of our Tinted Bondago's or semi-gloss latex for best results. Metallic Paint Glazes are a great solution for someone wanting a metallic wall finish. In all the product shots below, the glaze was simply "stippled" or pounced on with an inexpensive "Chip" brush.
