Vallejo metallic colors manufactured with actual metal pigments in alcohol based formula which results in a metallic finish of extraordinary realism and permanence. The colors can be diluted with alcohol, mixed with one another to achieve further variations of tonality and dry rapidly on all kinds of surfaces. Liquid Gold cannot be mixed with water, the slightest contact with water will cause the pigments to rust within the jar. Brushes should be cleaned in alcohol only. Liquid Gold contains alcohol and is therefore flammable, but the product does not contain xylene or toluene, and is neither toxic nor harmful in normal use. The colour patches may vary from the actual colour. Not suitable for children under 14 years. For use under adult supervision.
