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.

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 can’t believe how great the coverage was and how evenly it dried.

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