How to Use New Metallic Paint

I was so excited to use the new one-step metallic paint on this French chest!

There’s five stunning colors to choose from and I finally decided on Steel Magnolia.

Find your local retailer here to see if they have these amazing Moonshine Metallics colors in stock!

How To:

First, I cleaned the piece with White Lightning. This is such an important step.

To learn more about cleaning with White Lightning, read this!

Next, I used BOSS in Clear to block odors, stains, and stop bleed thru. I think this was key for the metallic paint.

Then, I used 3 coats of Steel Magnolia. I canโ€™t believe how great the coverage was and how evenly it dried.

I painted the details of the piece with Black Gilding Wax.

    Hi, I was just wondering if you have any stockiest in Australia, Iโ€™m in love with your metallics?

      Hi Sharon, thanks for loving Dixie Belle Paint! We are sorry, but at this time Dixie Belle Paint is not shipping overseas. We are working out the logistics for doing so and hopefully will be shipping to Australia sooner rather than later! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Can the new metallic paints be tinted by adding another regular paint color.
    Such as wedding belle and add fluff???

      Hi Georgia, yes you can! Try Rozay over Soft Pink or Silver Bullet over Driftwood too! Happy painting! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi Tracey!

Iron Patina paint with blue and green spray!

Prime start is for doing patina on metal surfaces

That is too much wow!

Yes it’s Jasmin


I need to create this!

Iron at top-which is which sprays??

YOu are inspiring me to "redo" a couple tables that have not sold...I was just going to take them to the, THANK YOU!!!

Your imagination is amazing. I would never have considered patina underneath.

I would love a dresser like that for my big tv in the living room <3

You have motivated me to paint a little table I have have for over 15 years. I will send pictures but I have no idea how or what to paint on it.

I painted old furniture for my sons a gazillion years ago (oldest is 50) and then again for my granddaughters.

So excited to share in your big day with you!๐Ÿพ๐Ÿฅ‚

Love seeing you so excited and happy

prep is so frustrating. It's always some new challenge. I never get to the painting part. Ugh

Yes I need to see live patina being done from start to finish

How do you get the details of the carvings back now that there’s so much paint in the grooves

That dresser behind you is so gorgeous!

I asked above, I asked if I painted the iron paint then sprayed if it would alter the colors around it that wasn’t patina

If it makes you feel any better I am painting a table for the third time while I watch you.
