Coming to the US exclusively via ImpendingDuff, the long anticipated and sought after high end metallic line of acrylic paints from Darkstar.
Developed originally for the wargaming and fantasy modelling market, we believe that these water-based metallic acrylics are a great addition to your armory of paints for any modelling genre.
Darkstar Molten Metals are permanent when dry and there is no need for gloss varnishing as our metals stay bright and glossy and will not tarnish over time. Once fully dry (approx. 24 hours) they can be carefully polished to further improve the shine.
We do recommend that a primer or acrylic base coat is used prior to our paints.
You will find that they can also be used through an airbrush with just a 10% reduction with Darkstar Molten Metals Thinner for a great airbrush finish and will still remain glossy. Our paint should not to be mixed with any alcohol based products.
Darkstar Molten Metals are fully intermixable and can also be mixed with other acrylic paints to create your very own metallic colors.
