These metal powders are made from 100% real ground up metal, they aren't just a metallic pigment or a blend like most inferior products. Due to this they will leaf on the top of the resin and look like gold leaf etc.
They give your resin artwork a real wow factor and create a lovely resin colour. Only a small amount (about 2 grams for colours except aluminium) (1gm for aluminium) to make 100mls of coloured resin.
They can also be sprinkled on the top of the resin when wet or sprinkled on the art board before the resin is poured on to create different effects.
Metal powders aren’t just used to make resin colour. They are excellent for use in alcohol ink artwork. A little bit sprinkled on the alcohol ink and extender on the surface will leave beautiful metallic effects in the colour line
