Model Master Metalizer is a unique metalizing plate finish especially formulated for plastic models. It is a high quality product manufactured with the finest materials available. The Metalizer system consists of a wide range of buffing colors, which allow the modeler to duplicate many natural metal finishes.
|Instructions: Make sure the plastic part to be painted is dry and free of dust, lint, fingerprints, mold release compound and any other foreign matter. Thin residual films of silicon (sometimes left on plastic parts as a result of the molding process) may be removed by cleaning with a small amount of rubbing alcohol or washing detergent and water. If a detergent and water wash is used, the part should be water rinsed and dried completely. Shake the bottle or spray can thoroughly prior to use. Stir bottles occasionally if one color is being used for a prolonged period. Recap tightly after use. Metalizer products are recommended for all major kinds of airbrushes, both internal and external mix. Set airbrush at a medium setting and fine tune airbrush and pressure to a personal preference and individual technique. If thinning is desired use Metalizer Thinner 1419 only. Model Master Airbrush Thinner is not recommended. When using buffing colors, spray light mist coats and allow to dry for about 10 minutes. Buff with facial tissue, cotton balls, or a soft cloth to desired sheen. For best results, begin by buffing very lightly at first, gradually increasing pressure as the finish begins to buff up to the desired metal-plate look. Non-buffing Metalizer colors also are ready to use airbrushing lacquers. However buffing is not required or recommended. The non-buffing colors represent a range of metallic shades and levels of sheen to allow for a variety of effects. Metalizer buffing colors are compatible with all other buffing colors, just as the nonbuffing colors may be mixed with each other to produce desired shades. Cross-mixing of buffing and non-buffing colors is not recommended. Due to the unique nature of Metalizer coatings, the use of standard-tack masking tape is not recommended. Low-tack tape can be used successfully on non-buffing colors. Dry Metalizer finishes may be decaled as usual. Model Master Decal Set 2146 is recommended as a compatible setting solution. Seal all buffing and non-buffing colors with Metalizer Sealer 1409 bottle or 1459 spray. Clean your airbrush with Metalizer Thinner 1419. Note – The Metalizer Sealer will protect the painted surface against fingerprints or minor abrasions but a slight decrease in metallic brilliance is normal. Metalizer can be over painted with most hobby paint. As always, you should first test for overcoat compatibility before applying to the finished model.|Technical
