It is an acrylic paint with a metallic finish, which means that when it dries, the surface will be lustrous and will resemble bronze. The pigments in the paint produce a warm, dark brown-bronze hue with excellent coverage, making it ideal as a base for highlights and shades for miniatures.

It serves as the painting’s metallic framework, giving the miniature a solid base upon which additional hues can be applied to create a polished appearance.
