Chose textured liquid metal

Textured liquid metal is one of the attractions of Metalier real metal coatings.   With texture you can create a vast array of different looks.  It’s the eighth reason why you should choose the Metalier liquid metal system.

Mud pies for grown-ups

With Metalier you can create elegant repetitive patterns such as sandscrit.  You can also go wild creating random heavy looks.  There is something very satisfying about making a toothpaste-like mix of binder and metals and applying it with a spatula or spoon or other ordinary house-hold implement.  Our team even make patterns using paper. It’s mud pies for grown-ups.

The ability to texture also means that you can create special effects using leaves and other things from nature.  Leaves, for example, can become part of the final finish or just lightly applied and then lifted off leaving a leaf-print.  You can use the same techniques on any pattern you like – we’ve seen it used with shapes and even with fish.  Maybe it would even work with those ubiquitous front door swans that were so fashionable in the 1950s – but then, maybe not.

We love the subtle textures introduced into the finish featured in this blog.  It was completed by our talented team in North America.  You can check out their website here.

Patinas and waxes

Patination is most effective when applied to textured liquid metal. The 3 different patinas Metalier produces create rust, pearlescent effects, aging and Verdigris.  The highs and lows of textured finishes show the variety that patina creates – strongly coloured in the depths with high polish on the highs. Black waxes also work well on the textures for the same reason – dark lows and light highs.

Boutique and hand-crafted

Metalier finishes are boutique and hand-crafted so no two finishes will ever look the same.  No two applicators will produce identical work.   Sometimes the same applicator can’t repeat what he or she did before!  This is one of the great attractions of the Metalier system. Architects and designers can pushing design barriers and clients receive an individual and unique look.

Pretty compelling we think.
