Jesmonite Metal Filler can be added to Jesmonite AC100 and AC300 to provide decorative metal finishes. They can be added to the Gel Coat or to both the Gel Coat and substrate compounds for laminating and casting.
The Jesmonite Base and Liquid should be mixed at 2:1 Base:Liquid – then the Metal Filler should be added at between 70% and 100% of the mixed material.

Once objects are de-moulded and dried, the surface can be burnished with 000 Wire Wool to bring out the metallic finish. The finished surface can then have a patina added using cold patina solutions to create the classic Verdi-Gris effect.
Please note this Jesmonite Metal Filler is not the same as our own Bronze Metal Powder which doesn’t work so well with Jesmonite.
