    Posted on


    Liquid leaf is back in stock here at Devon Art Supplies in a variety of colours. You can see the available range here. It gives a beautiful sheen, a metallic looking finish to projects, often used on ornamental furniture and frames but can be used on a number of surfaces. 

    Our supplier says:
    "Liquid Leaf is an easy-to-use way of adding an effective metallic finish to many surfaces or objects including carved and ornamental furniture, frames, mouldings, decorative ceilings, lamps and figurines.
    Liquid Leaf combines a red primer together with a film of lustrous metal particles pre-mixed into a single spirit-based liquid which creates a beautiful, vibrant finish with a brilliant sheen that resembles traditional gilded work.
    To usesimply shake the paint thoroughly to ensure the metallic particles are evenly distributed then apply. Liquid Leaf flows easily onto the surface with no brush marks, forming a beautiful, lustrous finish. It is so controllable that it can be used with striping brush or ruling pen for fine lines and scrolls. After applying Liquid Leaf allow it to dry and, if required, seal the painted surface."
