View Full Version : Painting Castings

22-12-2009, 08:26 AM
Hi everyone.
I'm, new here so hopefully not repeating something that's already been posted.
I'm trying to find some silver/gold paint to use with baby casting kits that I want to sell. I understand that acryllic paint is best to use, but can only source in small pots unless it is extortionately priced - so it won't cost up. I have tried readymixed metalic paint but it appears a little duller.
Any suggestions of where I can source larger pots of metalic acryllic paint at reasonable price OR how to make readymix metalic paint look more shiny (is there something you can add)?
Many thanks!!
