Metallics Masterclass

Intro to the course

This course is aimed at those that have already completed our 4 day intro course, are familiar with Novacolor products but, wish to learn about all of the metallic finishes that can be achieved.

With metallics, we need to understand just how large a range of Novacolor finishes are available. On the one-day class we explore the different products and various techniques to get just the result you’re after. This type of technique will make any installation truly bespoke and allows for a high impact finish.

Metallics can be used on their own as a finish, or as a colour wash, which works particularly well over textured Marmorino.

What you will learn

The Theory

  • You will learn the theory behind where and when it’s best to use metallics for impact and its greatest effect. 

The Practical

  • You will work on your own sample boards, learning how to apply with a sponge, brush and trowel. 

The Takeaways

  • You can take with you your sample boards to show prospective clients.
  • We offer ongoing support, as well as specialist products and advanced training courses.
