Detailed Description

Mixol Metallic Effect Tints

See below for color chart.

Mixol Metallics are aqueous pigments used to add a metallic sparkle to finishes. Since they contain a bit of water, they are not true universal colorants. Mettalics are best used in water-based finishes, but can also be used in shellac and epoxy.

Metallics are most effective in clear finishes. They can be used in paints or other colored finishes, but some finishes may have larger pigment particles that will obscure the metallic effect.) When mixing metallics with Mixol universal tints, use the non-Oxide colors (bottles with white caps) as the larger pigments of the Oxides (bottles with red caps) may obscure the metallic sparkle.

Always test Metallic mixtures before using on your project. You will want to make sure you can acheive you desired level of sparkle in your chosen finish. In addition, you'll need to check the viscosity of your finish with Mixol Metallic in it. They can make some finishes too thick. We recommend mixing metallics slowly and extensively to insure complete dispersal of the flakes.

Mixol is a universal tint that can be mixed into many finishing products - water-based, solvent-based, oil-based. It can be mixed with paint, stain, epoxy, glaze, shellac, lacquer, putty, filler, grout and many other products. It's easily cleaned up with water.

Mixol metallics are not a finish on their own, they must be mixed with finish to work. Metallics are concentrated so you won't need a lot - think drops, not ounces. The pigments are the highest quality - sourced from all over the world. Mixol tints are made in Germany.

Mixol tints are available in 30g (~1oz) and 300g (~10oz) bottles. Maximum recommended concentration (by weight) is 10%, but 3-5% is usually enough.
