Small thumb metalcolor2

Morning everyone !!!

This week i discovered and used a new sort of metal paint, The Vallejo Metal "Metal Color", and I was so impressed by it that i must share it with you !.

This is the most incredible acrylic metal paint i ever used ! Compared to this range, the rest (game color, model color, gw) are total trash
the only one you can keep is "Iron pig" by P3.

I usually use alcohol based metal paint because their shine is over the top, but "Metal Color" range is very close to it and a lot easier to use.
The number of colors is incredible with more than 15 colors. You can Air spray them just fine for perfect coverage and blend. Yes, you can even BLEND them (use glaze medium), and you can even mix 2 paint from this range to create shadow, highlight, layer. Not to mention the incredible coverage !!!

I DECLARE ! I NEVER GOING TO USE ANOTHER PAINT ! (to paint metal)

Alas there is a problem with them, it's the price, 10$ a pot for 32 ml. So it's expensive if you want to get the complete range, but for 20$ you can get : Gun metal grey and Aluminium (one bright on dark) and as you can mix them you can get any color you need. you can then invest in more teint (lot of choice !)

Ps : As with all reflective metal paints, if wash or varnish them, they will loose 90% of their shine.
Ps2 : If you buy them in a local shop, check the bottle before buying, you need to hear a clear "Clap" when you open/close.
