The Darkstar Molten Metals paints are some of the best out there, but traditionally were hard to find in the US, not anymore, though!
We normally know Duff for the great painting tutorials, but he also has quite a big store full of some great supplies. So, if you want to check out his painting tutorials, you can check those out here, but for now, let’s check out the store!
Sometimes you can find them on eBay and on Amazon every once in a while, but it’s not very consistent. So, it’s awesome to have a source for them here in the states!
There are four pages of the paints, so way more than we are even showing here. Plus for the price, these are just hard to beat for NMM or metal paints. So be sure to check the store out for everything, but we’ll take a look at some of our favorites below!
Victorian Gold 17ml: $4.49
Coming to the US exclusively via ImpendingDuff, the long-anticipated and sought-after high-end metallic line of acrylic paints from Darkstar.
Developed originally for the wargaming and fantasy modeling market, we believe that these water-based metallic acrylics are a great addition to your armory of paints for any modeling genre.
Copper 17ml: $4.49
Darkstar Molten Metals are permanent when dry and there is no need for gloss varnishing as our metals stay bright and glossy and will not tarnish over time. Once fully dry (approx. 24 hours) they can be carefully polished to further improve the shine.
We do recommend that a primer or acrylic base coat is used prior to our paints.
Antique Gold 17ml: $4.49
You will find that they can also be used through an airbrush with just a 10% reduction with Darkstar Molten Metals Thinner for a great airbrush finish and will still remain glossy. Our paint should not be mixed with any alcohol-based products.
Darkstar Molten Metals are fully intermixable and can also be mixed with other acrylic paints to create your very own metallic colors.
