Common FAQ's 

Can I use Metallic Glides outdoors? 
No Metallic Glides are designed to be a decorative detailing product for indoor projects only. For outdoor metallics, head over to view our Metallic Cremes 

At what stage do I apply my Metallic Glide, before or after waxing? 
Metallic Glides are the "final" finishing product, paint & wax your project until you are happy with it. Once you feel you're finished, the Metallic Glides will go on last, ensure the wax on your furniture is touch dry and apply Metallic Glide over your selected areas. 

Is it really as simple as gliding it on? 
Yes it is :-) 

Can I use it over other waxes or brands of paint finishes? 
Metallic Glides have been developed, tested and made  to work in seamlessly with the  Artisan Paint and Wax system as well as with Velvet Luxe. This would be a matter of "trial" but there is always a chance it may not work in the way that it's been intended or designed too and the experience may differ. You may achieve less lustre shine or depth.  W e always recommend where you can, to keep to the one system. However Artisan Metallic Glides will take directly on to natural porous surfaces such as pebbles, rocks, shells  and most  semi matt surfaces, if in doubt, apply Artisan Premium Chalk Paint  on to your surface, wax, then apply  your Metallic Glide.
