"Swellegant!" is a wonderful line of metal coatings and colourants. There are five different METAL COATINGS. Use these to coat most surfaces (polymer clay, metal, plaster, resin, wood, ceramic, and more!). Once your piece is coated, you have three PATINAS rust, verdigris, and dark antiquing, from which to choose. To add just the right amount of colour there are thirteen DYE-OXIDES. These are concentrated colours, but transparent and they act like patinas, soaking into the other layers of your piece and transforming all the layers. You can add multiple applications to build up the tint or just one layer for a faint whisper of colour. All the metal coatings, patinas and dye-oxides can be layered in any order, as many times as you want,until you build up the look you want. Finally, you can apply the CLEAR SEALANT to your surface applications to preserve them and keep the colourants from rubbing off.This sealant is made especially for use with these products and adds absolutely no shine to the piece.
