Faux Metal™


Faux Metal™ is a modern, metal coating containing real metals. This material provides excellent coverage and may be applied directly to metal without discoloration or the subsequent rusting of the original metal surface. It performs exceptionally well as a non-tarnishing basecoat. It may be used on decorative trim work, for stenciling, gilding and even as fabric paint.
