Yes, FolkArt Treasure Gold can be used to color block an area. It can also be used to basecoat larger areas, such as a piece of furniture, for a very dramatic metallic effect. When color blocking, use stencil tape or painter’s tape to mask the areas to be painted.
Yes, when desired, FolkArt Treasure Gold can be thinned with water, to create fine, detail decorative lines or strokework. However, if diluted too much, the opacity of the metallic paint will be reduced, and therefore, a second application to obtain a solid, opaque metallic effect is required.
FolkArt Treasure Gold dries to a luscious metallic finish when thoroughly dried and does not require a topcoat or varnish. For extra protection, however, a clear acrylic spray sealer or a brush-on varnish may be used. Keep in mind that additional topcoat or varnish will alter the original luster/sheen of FolkArt Treasure Gold.
