Advice 1: How to plant silver

The silver is aluminum powder made of primary aluminium using melktert grinding. Grinding is of two categories, so the powder can be in the form PAP-1 and PAP-2. Used for painting of any surfaces in the open air and in high temperature. With proper breeding has good covering power, smoothly and protects any surface from corrosion.
How to plant silver
You will need
  • - Lac;
  • - silver powder;
  • - synthetic drying oil;
  • - white spirit;
  • - turpentine;
  • - solvent;
  • construction mixer or a drill.
Use for painting all surfaces powder PAP-1 or PAP-2. Any silverfish has a small grated grinding, and is well diluted in the varnish or a synthetic drying oil, but the way of breeding are different.
Breed silver powder PAP-2 any varnish in the proportions 1:4 or 1:3. If you take 1 liter of varnish, you can breed them 250 or 350 g of silverfish. The resulting paint had a smooth consistency, pour first in the capacity of silver powder and then slowly pour the nail Polish. When you add the lacquer perform a thorough whisking the powder with a mixer or with a drill attachment.
Next, perform a dilution of the mixture to painting consistency. To do this, add the resulting solution white spirit, turpentine, solvent or their mixture and dissolve the composition in a ratio of 1:1. You get a paint that can be applied with a spray gun. For application by roller or brush then dilute in a ratio of 1:0.5.
To breed the silver marks PAP-1, varnish BT-577 in the ratio of 2:5, i.e., pour 2 parts of silver powder, 5 parts of varnish and the resulting mixture was dilute to a painting consistency.
To breed the silver varnish, guided by these proportions. Never dilute the powder with natural drying oil, as the composition will have opaque properties worse than when you use a synthetic varnish.
With this method of cooking silverfish you will have consumption of one layer coating 100g per square meter. Painting all surfaces with silver paint is applied at least three layers. Each subsequent layer is applied after complete drying of the painted layer.
When using makeup constantly, with a frequency of every hour produce a re-shuffle grooves with a mixer or drill.
The shelf life of silver powder is not limited. The shelf life of the diluted composition should not exceed 6 months at freezing temperatures.

Advice 2 : How to make a silverfish

Covered with silver the product is very similar to metal. The paint required for various stylizations, whether it be manufacturing fake knight's armor or household items, if you want to make it look like metal. Materials for the manufacture of such paint can be purchased at any hardware store, or to the advantage of the online store where aluminum powder, nitrocellulose lacquer and linseed oil also come in fairly regularly.
How to make a silverfish
You will need
  • - aluminum powder;
  • - linseed oil;
  • - nitrocellulose lacquer;
  • - measuring utensils;
  • - a pot or a bucket for dilution of the paint.
  • - wooden stick for stirring.
Aluminum powder is sold in different packages, so you first need to estimate the number. Calculate how much you need of varnish or lacquer to cover a particular surface, and then calculate the amount of aluminum powder. The proportions of the ingredients depend largely on the desired consistency, however, the average ratio is about 1 Cup of aluminum powder per 1 kg of drying oil.
The powder may be any, but to breed a better one that is smaller. So PAP-2 in this sense preferable to PAP-1. Most often it is because of her and doing the silverfish in an industrial environment.
Brand linseed oil or varnish chosen depending on where it is the surface that you are going to paint. Usually on the label, which surface can be coated with linseed oil varieties. For painting exterior surfaces are preferable to synthetic drying oil, asphalt lacquer, or nitrocellulose lacquer, because they are more resistant to the vagaries of the weather. For interior surfaces you can use any drying oil. Keep in mind that the varnish dries much faster. For urgent work the most suitable nitrocellulose lacquer.
Pour linseed oil or varnish in the container in which you will dissolve the paint. Pour a small amount of aluminum powder and stir until smooth. Repeat the above procedure. Sprinkle the powder gradually, in small portions, otherwise it will be awkward to interrupt. In the end, you should get a homogeneous mass without the silver concentrations of the powder. It is therefore preferable to one that has a smaller fraction.
Before you cover the entire surface, try to determine how long to dry paint. Make a small amount of silverfish and cover it a piece of material that you are going to paint. Place to it, which would be the product. If the paint dries too long, consider whether to change its base.
The silverfish on the nitrocellulose lacquer can be stored. However, the powder settles to the bottom, and before painting it must stir again.
Useful advice
Silver surface can also be obtained by the method of dusting. Cover the product with a liquid varnish. On top sprinkle it with the aluminum powder to fully cover the surface. The coating is more bright. The disadvantage of this method is that after drying the object for quite a long time dirty. Therefore, it is necessary several times to thoroughly clean to remove the excess powder.
