In this short How To video we show you how to make a metallic glaze using The Artisan Company Metallic Alchemy range.

Using the Illuminator and your choice of Metallic Concentrate you can make a semi-translucent glaze that gives a wonderful metallic shimmer while allowing your base colour to come through.

In this video we talk you through what a glaze is, the tools you'll need and how to mix your glaze.

Tips for mixing your metallic glaze:

  1. Mix on a flat surface so you can fully mix the Illuminator and Metallic Concentrate together.
  2. Measure with the measuring spoons and keep a track of how much you have used in case you need to mix more.
  3. Wipe the rim of your Illuminator jar with a damp cloth to remove any spills.
  4. You want your glaze to have a runny consistency when fully mixed.
  5. If using outside add a topcoat of premium lacquer for added durability.
  6. Wash your Spalter brush with warm water and gentle soap, we love the French olive soap, to keep your bristles conditioned and soft.
