Createx Wicked Airbrush Colors: Metallic Elegance

Metallic Colors are pearl base coats. For graphics and base coat application, they're best applied as a mid-coat over a color-keyed AutoBorne Sealer base.

On average, 2-3 coats are required for complete coverage. Orientation will benefit from a drop-coat after full coverage has been achieved.

Start with a color-keyed AutoBorne Sealer for best orientation. Auto Air Metallic Colors lay down flat with an even when applied over a color-keyed base color as opposed to a white or black base. By color-keying with the base color, less material is required which reduces the build that creates a mottled, splotchy finish. Using minimal amounts of the Metallic paint, key to achieve an even finish. It is also important to allow for adequate drying time. If the underlying coat is still tacky, the next coat will accumulate along the underlying coat's metallic pattern and develop channels which will create a mottled appearance. Color-keying the with the underlying base color saves not only material, but allows for quicker drying times due to less material per coat and an even orientation in the finish.

Allow each coat ample time to dry. When the pearlescent powder in the underlying coat is truly dry, the next, wet coat's pearlescent powder will not accentuate the underlying pattern resulting in 'channeling' of pearlescent in the finish. Applying a well-orientated coat in an even and consistent spray pattern that is properly atomized is essential to a achieving a great finish. Using with a color-keyed AutoBorne Sealer makes this much easier when painting helmets, bikes, cars and any large paint job.

Love it! Amazing customer service too!

I love this colour!! It is fast becoming my new favourite metallic. Through airbrush or with a brush, the colour comes through beautifully. And so have to give a shout out for outstanding customer service when the weather turned bad right after I ordered and even though I ordered the hot pack, they called to ask if I wanted the order held for a few days so it wouldn’t sit in the freezing cold (-30) over the weekend!! They saved my paint!! SO impressed! Will definitely become my new supplier!
