I used the bronze powder mixed in to the casting and coating resin. It covered the surface of the sculpture easily and dried to a brilliant effect. Well worth the effort. I am now enclosing the sculpture in a plastic bag with some moisture in the hope of creating a verdigris effect.
Bronze Alumilite Metallic Powder is used to reproduce realistic looking bronze appearances easily.
Metallic Powders are used to give you the quality metal finish that a paint can not duplicate. The powders include real, tiny metal particles for a realistic metal finish. You can reproduce any casting with Alumilite's Copper, Bronze, Gun Metal, Gold, or Silver metallic powders. These powders are used with resin, and are usually applied in your mould prior to casting (you can also mix the powder in with one part of the resin).
Coat the mould with a light dusting of powder and pour in your casting resin.
Works beautifully with both our Alumilite resins.
Can also be added to any clear paint and be used to paint a metallic finish on to different surface materials.
Easy to use, beautiful, and affordable!
