NOTE: Tip instructions are based on Designer Metallics™ system, not just the base (Part A), or the concentrate (Part B).

  • For our standard colors, add 4 Oz. per quart or 16 Oz. per gallon of metallic concentrate Part B to Designer Metallic™ color base Part A. Mix well for at least 2 minutes or until all of the metallic concentrate is completely dispersed.
  • For custom colors, add varying amounts of Part B metallic concentrate, up to 32 Oz. per gallon, to Part A color resin. Up to 12 Oz. per gallon of FauxCreme™ or AquaColor™ may also be added to custom color mixes.
  • The addition of the metallic concentrate can lead to product instability over an extended period of time. Under certain conditions, such as excessive heat above 95° F, the mixed product may break down in as little as 8 hours and form irritating hydrogen gas and heat. Mix only what you need, then use it at normal room temperatures.
  • Storage after the addition of the metallic concentrate into the Designer Metallic™ base is extended under cool conditions.
  • Cool conditions may prolong this product’s stability. Never refrigerate this product where food is stored.
  • Faux Effects™ does not recommend any storage of Designer Metallic™ beyond 3 days after mixing in the metallic concentrate into the Designer Metallic™ base material, even under cool conditions.

NOTE: Basic Application instructions are based on Designer Metallics™ system, not just the base (Part A), or the concentrate (Part B).

  • Part A is a custom reflective color material dispersed in a proprietary co-polymer acrylic resin system. Part B is a metallic concentrate that is added to Part A when ready for application.
  • Apply Designer Metallic™ over any clean, dry, painted surface by brush, roll or spray. Spraying works best; however, good results can be obtained with a quality fine nap or sponge roller.
  • A high quality brush may also be used.
  • For spray applications use a medium size fluid tip cap.
  • Wait at least 2 hours between coats.
  • Wait overnight before applying any water base or solvent base decorative glazing material.
  • V.O.C. Compliant
  • Low Odor
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Do not apply in temperatures below 55°F, or in damp, cold or humid conditions.

  • Once concentrate has been added to the base (Designer Metallics™ (Textured)), shelf life is reduced to 72 hours!
  • All Designer Metallics™ (Regular/Textured) purchases include the appropriate size concentrate additive (this product). By default, Designer Metallics™ Concentrate Silver is the color additive added to your purchase. It is unnecessary to purchase additional concentrate unless you would like additional concentrate or additional color options.
