MASTERS® METALLIC PAINT COLLECTION™ is an elegant alternative
to ordinary latex paint. Unlike other metallic paint, Modern Masters
Metallic Paint Collection paints apply easily—like traditional
latex paint. All colors can be applied by brush, roller, or HVLP spray
Masters Metallic Paint Collection paints combine real metallic particles,
mica, and traditional pigments to create the forty-color palette of
beautiful, shimmering colors. This unique approach enables the creation
of non-fading colors never before available. Metallic Paint Collection
products are water-based and non-hazardous. They contain no lead, mercury,
or other toxic ingredients. The absence of harmful solvents makes Modern
Masters Metallic Paint Collection paints easy and safe to use.

Follow standard practices and procedures for properly preparing surfaces
for the application of traditional water-based latex paint. All surfaces
to be painted must be entirely free of dust, dirt, oil, grease, and
other contaminants. Completely remove all loose, flaking, or chalking
paint from the surfaces. Use a NIOSH approved respirator when sanding
and when working with old, loose paint particles. Provide adequate ventilation.
Properly prime the clean, dry surface with a high-quality 100% acrylic
primer (we highly recommend using Zinsser’s Bullseye 1-2-3®
primer/sealer), and allow the surface to dry completely— preferably
overnight. Note: Lower temperatures and higher humidities will lengthen
the dry and cure times. Important Note: Do not apply Metallic Paint
Collection paints over slick, glossy, or previously top-coated surfaces—apply
ONLY onto properly primed surfaces.
Modern Masters Metallic Paint Collection paints can be brushed, rolled,
or sprayed onto any paintable, properly primed, interior or exterior
surface, such as walls, ceilings, collumns, trim, doors, furniture,
and paintable wallcoverings. Check the side of the Metallic Paint Collection
label for paint hide and coverage characteristics. Opaque colors have
excellent hide—two coats are recommended for best results. Semi-opaque
colors have good hide—three coats are recommended for best results.
Sheer colors are translucent overcoats that impart luster to traditional
paints, other Metallic Paint Collection colors, or faux finishes and
broken colors. Always test the product in a small, inconspicuous area
before beginning a project to see if the desired results are attained.
Do not apply in temperatures below 58°F/14°C. Stir the paint
well before using.
Brushing: Use a high-quality brush recommended for water-based semigloss
Rolling: To roll Metallic Paint Collection paints add up to 16 fluid
ounces/473 milliliters of Modern Masters Metallic Paint Collection Extender
for Rolling to 1 gallon/3.78 liters of Metallic Paint Collection paints.
The Extender for Rolling imparts the ‘wet-edge’ time needed
to avoid lap marks. Use the Metallic Paint Collection Roller to apply
Metallic Paint Collection paints to large surfaces, such as walls. Use
a 4-inch ‘sausage roller’ (such as a Wizz™ roller)
to cut in corners, ceilings, and baseboards. Work in approximately 4-foot
wide sections, keeping a wet edge, and finishing the surface by back-rolling
in one direction, ceiling to floor. This procedure will minimize lap
marks, properly orient the metallic paint particles, and ensure a uniform
Spraying: To spray Metallic Paint Collection paints, use an HVLP spray
gun in combination with an air compressor. Note: Do not use turbine-type
“air compressors” to power the HVLP spray gun; do not use
other types of spray guns (e.g. airless spray guns). Air pressure at
the HVLP spray gun needs to be approximately 65 psi, with greater pressures
in the tank. If thinning is necessary, add up to 16 fluid ounces/473
milliliters of water to one gallon/3.78 liters of Metallic Paint Collection
paints. Thin carefully, as over thinning of the paint will result in
loss of hide and a reduction of the desired appearance. Use a NIOSH
approved respirator when spraying. Provide adequate ventilation. Protective
Clear Coating: In certain applications, such as some exterior areas
and interior high-traffic areas, Metallic Paint Collection paints may
require the use of a protective clear topcoat. A top-quality water-based,
polyurethane/acrylic clear topcoat, such as Modern Masters MasterClear
Semigloss or MasterClear Satin, improves washability, scuff resistance,
abrasion resistance, and reduces the ‘rub-off’ of the Metallic
Paint Collection paints. Important Note: Other clear topcoats- especially
100% acrylic topcoats-may dull and otherwise ruin the appearance of
many Metallic Paint Collection paints. If you persist in using a different
clear topcoat besides MasterClear, be sure to test a small area to ensure
that the desired appearance does not become dull or otherwise change.
Properties (Drying times at 70°F and 50%RH):
Dry Times: Recoat time is approximately ½ hour. Dry-to-touch
time is approximately an hour. Note: Lower temperature and/or higher
humidity will lengthen the dry and cure times.
Coverage: One gallon/3.78 liters will cover approximately 320 to 400
square feet/30 to 37 square meters.
Clean Up: Clean brushes, rollers, tool, and equipment with soap and
warm water immediately after use. Do not reuse containers and properly
dispose of empty containers.
Storage: Close tightly all containers when not in use. Store in a cool
dry place away from direct sunlight. Do not freeze. If Metallic Paint
Collection paints become frozen, allow the paint to completely thaw
and come to room temperature before use. Stir thoroughly before use.
