Decorative Coating

Sophisticated Finishes™ (formerly Modern Options) products are perfect for transforming sculptures, fountains, light fixtures, or more into works of art. Create authentic finishes of enduring style and natural elegance with our Metallic Surfacers and Antiquing Solutions.

More than a ‘patina effect’, the Sophisticated Finishes line of metallic surfacers contains real metal particles suspended in a water-based acrylic. Your item won’t just look like it is gold, bronze, copper, silver, pewter or platinum; it will actually have a real coating of metal. Metallic Surfacers are simple to apply and require no special tools or training. Metallic Effects can be applied to any paintable surface, including, but not limited to: concrete, plaster, wood, plastic, paper, and even cloth. In just a few hours, you can create durable and beautiful accessories for your home, garden, or architectural accents both indoors and out.

Antiquing Solutions oxidize our reactive Metallic Surfacers or can be used on genuine copper, brass, bronze or iron while our tinting solutions can be used to antique any of the Metallic Surfacers giving a beautifully aged metal effect.
