Swellegant!™ metal coatings are made from pulverized metal so when you paint these products onto other jewelry materials, you create metal jewelry pieces. You’ll love all the possibilities of these flexible coatings as explained by award-winning artist Christi Friesen.

Swellegant metal coatings are actual pulverized metal suspended in a clear base. Choose from five different metals including silver, brass, copper, bronze and iron.

Metal coatings can be applied to polymer clay, metal, wood, shell, leather resin, terracotta, glass--almost any material.


Use an artist brush or gloved finger to apply the desired color of Swellegant metal coatings to the item of your choice. Allow the item to air dry. Apply additional coats of metal coating as desired allowing each layer to air dry.

Tip: Speed up the drying process by using a hair dryer. The heat will not hurt the metal coating.
