CraftNique Color Boutique is a unique coloring system made up of highly concentrated, nano sized pigment colors that can be easily mixed into any of the CrystaLac or CraftNique Bases to create your very own DIY Paint, Stains, Glazes, and Topcoats. We've put together 8 standard colors that can be used alone or inter-mixed together to make endless color combinations.
Mica Based Metallics:
Color Boutique Metallics are Highly Concentrated Mica Pigments incorporated into a liquid solution making them super easy to use without having to deal with airborne particles getting into your eyes, nose and on skin. 5 super rich sparkly colors (Silver, Gold, Copper, Champagne & Rose). Add directly into The Extreme Protection or Brite Tone or use straight for intense color similar to gold leafing. Use approximately 1 tsp per pint. Adjust more or less to attain the desired appearance and effect. Top- Coat to protect.
Properly prepping your tumbler is a critical step before using any paints or topcoats on it. We suggest a light scuff sanding with 400 grit sandpaper to ruff up the surface and then wipe clean with alcohol to remove any traces of dust or fingerprints.
Apply CrystaLac products at room temperature (65 to 80 degrees) and allow 2 hours drying time between coats of paint and/or finish. Finishes will self-level as they dry. Do Not Use heat guns to force drying. Full cure is 30 days. You can gently use before that, but it will continue to harden over a 30 day period. Hand wash only with soap and water and do not submit tumblers to extreme heat.
All products manufactured by The CrystaLac Company are Non-Toxic, Non-Hazardous, Non-Yellowing and completely safe to use indoors. Use a mask when sanding. CrystaLac products are made by a family owned company in the USA that has been making environmentally safe coatings for over 30 years.
