Creating the illusion of a metal finish is now as simple as painting a surface with a reactive metal paint that ages naturally in the same manner as a solid metal. In terms of design options, the ability to specify a paint that performs in this way creates an exciting new opportunity for designers.
“Reactive metal paints contain filings of metal, which is what allows them to behave in the same way as the solid version of that product,” Porter’s Paints’ Shontelle Croswell says.
The range encompasses finishes including liquid bronze, gold, copper, iron, tin and zinc, each of which behaves slightly differently. “Any of the paints in the reactive metal range can be applied to any substrate, and they’re suitable for both interior and exterior applications.”
