- Preparation is key to ensure the best finish for metallic paints. New plaster or plasterboard should be sealed with a plaster sealer. For non-powdery surfaces or to cover contrasting colours, prepare with a walls and ceilings primer. Painted surfaces should be sanded, clean and dry. Fill any holes or defects with filler. When sanding, wear a face mask to avoid dust inhalation

Persevered by applying 6 coats on a feature wall but have up due to poor finish, switched to a standard emulsion in the end. Waste of time and money, do not buy this

If you want patchy dark brown wet look walls then this is for you.

We read the reviews and hubbie is a decorator by trade, so felt confident we could apply to the feature wall and it would look good, we used an electric whisk to give it a good mixing as suggested, we also applied 4 coats as 2 coats still made it look a bit patchy but despite best efforts when dry, you could see every stroke and it looked really unprofessional, sadly had to admit I was wrong on this purchase, hubbie was right, now purchased more paint to recover the area.
You can’t rush it!

Having read the reviews I must say I was apprehensive, however one said to whisk the paint and it works! You have to regularly whisk it to get the pigment right. You also can’t rush it, the paint doesn’t like to have another coat on until it’s fully dry so you cant add another coat before 2 hours ish. Also it takes a good few coats. We ended up doing four coats on one feature wall, this was after doing a base white coat, but the results were fab! So if you’re patient it works out.
Mix it Well

This paint looks great on my feature chimney breast. I looked at the awful reviews and the good ones. I took the tip of using a kitchen electric whisk and gave it a good mix. The results were amazing, really nice. Basically, mixing manually probably just won't do it, or at least not as well. If it looks streaky in the pot it will look streaky on the wall. One thing to consider is the condition of the wall, if its got imperfections they will show up due to the reflective surface showing any dips, indentations or lumps as shadows. Don't worry about cleaning the whisk, this is emulsion and washes off in warm soapy water no problem. All in all, mix this well and apply on a good surface and it looks great.
