Hi, I would like to paint my custom aluminum range hood vent A gold color that resembles a light finished brass, a brushed brass. Would this be suitable for that project?
Due to the heat the surface will be exposed to we cannot recommend it for this application.

Hi, Can I used ardenbrite on a varnished surface or will it require sanding first? Many thanks
The product data sheet advises;
Ensure all surfaces are dry, clean sound and free from any surface contamination such as dirt, oil, rust, grease etc. Internal Non Porous Substrates: eg. previously painted, ceramic etc. apply 1 coat of Ardenbrite Quick Drying Base Coat (Note: if existing coating is hard/glossy then abrade before application).

Hi I have a decorative tile strip in my bathroom I’d like to paint over - would this paint be suitable please? Thanks
No, but the water based version would be more suitable - clean tiles to remove any soap residues, apply 1 coat Ardenbrite Quick Drying Base Coat followed by 2 coats of Ardenbrite Metallic Paint (Water Based). Additional protection can be provided with a couple of coats of Blackfriar Quick Drying Varnish. Note: These products could not be used on the walls within a shower area.

Would the paint be suitable to paint on metal candle holders, which will then be placed on tables? Many thanks.
Ardenbrite Metallic Paint (Solvent Based) should be fine for this application. If the holders will be handled frequently you may want to put a coat of Ardenbrite Protective Glaze on just to protect the metallic paint from finger marks.

Can I use this paint for the feature wall in my living room. Currently we have got Dulux paint. Do i need any undercoat?
Yes Ardenbrite Metallic Paint (Solvent Based) can be used as a feature wall paint. We would recommend using the Ardenbrite Quick Drying Base Coat to prime the wall first then apply 2 coats of Ardenbrite Metallic Paint (Solvent Based). Spray application will give the best appearance for the coating. You could also apply a coat of Ardenbrite Protective Glaze to protect against tarnishing from finger marks, liquid splashes, etc.

Question: Would Sovereign No 8 gold paint be suitable for painting sandblasted lettering on a slate gravestone? Would it need any priming? Do you have any photos you could send me of this being done? Thanks
Using the Ardenbrite Metallic Paint (Water Based) will make it simpler, cheaper and will last longer than the solvent system.
For the water based Ardenbrite, apply 1 coat of Zinsser Bulls Eye 1-2-3 to the clean prepared surface followed by 2 coats of Ardenbrite Metallic Paint (Water Based), no Ardenbrite Protective Glaze required. 2 colour options in the water based are Light Gold No.1, and Antique Gold No.9. The Light Gold is closest to Sovereign Gold No.8.
