We’re loving Fusion’s line of metallic paints! For that extra sense of austere elegance or bling, these paints are sure to please.
In this article, we’re giving you a taste of Fusion Mineral Paint Champagne Metallic.
Through the use of pure mica pigments, Fusion Metallics “shimmer unlike any other on the market.” We’re a fan. And not only do they shimmer, but they also bring the same sense of quality and safety as the regular Fusion Mineral paints.
The Fusion Metallics line carries nine different paints to cater to different color preferences. But before you get to painting, let’s look at some tips and tricks to painting with metallic. Afterward, let’s take a peek at DIY ideas and color palettes for this metallic paint.
What you should know about metallics
If you’re going to use metallics, you should know that it’s in your best interest to begin your project by laying down a coat of solid color. This solid color should look as close as possible to the metallic. Why? Metallic paint is rather transparent. If you don’t want the wood finish or the previous color on the furniture surface to show through, best to take this advice to heart.
So, for example, for Fusion Mineral Paint Champagne Metallic, use Champlain underneath.
Fusion Mineral Paint Champagne Metallic is geared toward making your furniture look a little more ritzy or ornate, depending on how you pair it up with other colors. But you don’t want to mess up by going about it the wrong way.
