How to Apply VS Metallic Powder using Hemp Seed Oil {Tutorial}

Today is the official release date of our Metallic Powder line, so I wanted to s with you all a tutorial on how to apply the Metallic Powder. There are a thousand different ways you could go about applying VS Metallic Powder, but in this demonstration I wanted to show you how you could get a very subtle metallic effect. I’m using the lightest color of Metallic Powder: Snowflake, and a light color of paint (Sea Salt from our new line of paint coming June 2015).  This creates a gorgeous halo effect that makes the piece look like it’s ging in the light! I love it!

Hopefully you can see the shine on the highlights of this project. It’s much easier to see in person, and difficult to capture this effect on camera.

If you want a more dramatic look with your metallic finish, I would recommend applying it with wax similar to how you would apply VS Antiquing Powder. I’m right in the middle of filming a tutorial on how to do this, so for those of you who want to know how it’s done – I’ll have that up next week!

I hope you enjoy experiment and playing around with the Metallic Powders as much as I have! Oh, and don’t forget, to celebrate the new product launch we’re offering 30% off your entire purchase. Now until May 15th!

    I read on the instructions that I can use glaze to apply the metallic powder. How would I go about mixing it and applying it this way? I also purchased the fiddes clear wax. Would it be better to apply it with that instead?
