I'm nuts about the stuff! Like Kris wrote, dries fast.
I have 4 shades, polished aluminum, flat aluminum, a middle gray, and black. I put a couple of drops in a tin lid, and mix them however you want. I polish with a soft brush mounted on a wheel using a small dental hand piece. Stuff looks just like metal!
PS: I think the shades are as I mentioned, there is no color written on the tin. They just look that way to me.

My LHS informed me that "Model Master Metalizer" paint could not be imported into Canada.
Wayne..about a month ago I found some Metalizer sprays at a shop in Dundas.

Thanks Mike! Hope to check that out soon. Have you heard anything about Metalizers not being allowed into Canada? Or was it my LHS?
I heard the same thing from my LHS, which would be typical (like the Model Master lacquers we no longer get). I've never seen them anywhere else on this side of the border, and the cans I bought have no french labeling on them.

Thanks so much "pack rat" ! I took the drive to Dundas Valley Hobby shop and found Metalizer paint there. They are almost out of it, and will be unable to get more. The gentleman at the hobby shop thinks it's unfair to model builders to disallow certain items to be sent across the border. I agree!
Happy to help.
Yes, it's too bad Testors chooses not to market certain products in Canada. This has been happening since the early 80's when we couldn't buy Car Colors on this side of the border...don't blame Testors, blame our labeling laws.
