Developed originally for the wargaming and fantasy modelling market, we believe that these water-based metallic acrylics are a great addition to your armoury of paints for any modelling genre.
Dark star Molten Metals are permanent when dry and there is no need for gloss varnishing as our metals stay bright and glossy and will not tarnish over time. Once fully dry (approx. 24 hours) they can be carefully polished to further improve the shine.
We do recommend that a primer or acrylic base coat is used prior to our paints.
You will find that they can also be used through an airbrush with just a 10% reduction with Darkstar Molten Metals Thinner or water mix for a great airbrush finish and will still remain glossy. Our paint should only be mixed with water (tap water can be used); they are not to be mixed with any alcohol based products.
Darkstar Molten Metals are fully intermixable and can also be mixed with other acrylic paints to create your very own metallic colours.
