(MONTVALE, NJ—JULY, 2012)—Endlessly bubbling up with innovation, Benjamin Moore has introduced Molten Metallics, a new addition to its Studio Finishes portfolio of specialty paints. The name of this new paint product evokes the end result: a surface imitative of a hand-hammered metal.
While most of the special effects coatings in the Studio Finishes collection are glazes, Molten Metallics is an alkyd high gloss paint. It is ideal for adding a dramatic, glamorous look to furniture, decorative pieces, trim and accent ceilings and walls. It also is recommended for exterior surfaces and delivers an effective rust-resistant treatment.
"The illusion of the texture that Molten Metallics creates is captivating and sensual," said Sonu Mathew, Benjamin Moore's senior interior designer. "It's an easy way to produce a rarified look that only artisans typically have mastered. And, it's a lot more economical, too."
Molten Metallilcs is sold in quarts, $22.95, or pints $15.95 MSRP. Six standard ready-mixed colors are offered: Gold, Copper, Bronze, Gun Smoke, Silver and Charcoal. Two coats are adequate to complete a project.
