GPW Paint Fan Deck

Metallic Paints Fan Deck

Introducing our Golden Paintworks® Metallic Paint Fan Deck. This traditional Fan Deck will aide in the decision making process for decorative painters, trade painters, designers and architects, when looking for a decorative metallic finish. Each leaf has a repeated color name and code on the back, so pieces can be cut off for story boards, color specifications, etc. without losing the color information. The decks have been created using lacquers instead of actual paint for production and wear characteristics. The colors represented are the 28 Pre-Mixed Jar Colors and the 4 Tint Base colors.

Metallic Paint Tintable Bases

Golden Paintworks’ four Metallic Paint Tint Base colors are the foundation for creating our Pre-Tinted Metallic Paint colors, as well as custom tinting in the studio or jobsite. Each Metallic Paint Tint Base color can be used on their own, as they have the same 2-coat coverage and ease of application as the Pre-Tinted Metallic Paints. Available in Quart & Gallon sizes.

Golden Paintworks® Metallic Paint Matting Additive is a concentrated dispersion of matting agents in an acrylic base that was formulated for use in all our Clear Glazes and Clear Topcoat products, but looks especially beautiful when added to the Pre-Mixed Metallic Paints. A recommended mixing ratio of 10 parts Metallic Paint to 1 part Matting Additive reduces the sheen considerably and leaves a soft, velvety look that goes well with any décor.
