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.
When thoroughly dry, projects completed using FolkArt Treasure Gold, will not require a topcoat or varnish. FolkArt Treasure Gold manufactured in the multi-surface formula, is self-sealing and will dry to a luscious metallic finish. However, for extra protection, should a surface be sealed with either a clear acrylic spray sealer or a brush-on varnish, please keep in mind that the metallic luster or sheen will change depending upon the type of finish or top coat that is applied.
