Montana MARBLE Effect Spray is a high-covering spray paint for a deceivingly realistic marble effect.
It can also be used for calligraphy.
Note: Always test beforehand, if surface/material is compatible!
- Very good adhesion.
- Fast drying time
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Give at least 45min but not more than 24hours drying time to the base coat before applying MARBLE effect (drying time might vary due to temperature, humidity and thickness of coating). Shake can vigorously for 2-3 minutes before use. Apply spray strokes from left to right in a crossing over motion (cross-coating) for best results. To achieve realistic marble effects, cock your wrist while applying. Can also be applied in traditional horizontal and vertical strokes for spider web like effects. Can be applied to wood, metal, glass, ceramic, porcelain, paper, stone and paintable plastics.
MARBLE Effect must be totally cured (after 24 hours) before sealing - Can be over painted when fully dry and cured (after 24hours), with Montana GOLD, BLACK or WHITE (Nitro-Combi, Acrylic or Synthetic based lacquers). Can also be applied over Montana ACRYLIC paint.
Always test spray on a non-visible area to check the compatibility of lacquer or paint.
For optimal lifespan, store cans with the nozzle on.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Montana MARBLE 400ml spray and how does it work?
Montana MARBLE 400ml spray is a medium pressure, high-grade and high covering effect spray that emits paint in the form of fibres or fillaments that don't completely cover the substrates surface. The further away you apply it the more it looks like marble texture. The closer you apply it the more it looks like spider web.
What surfaces can apply Montana MARBLE 400ml to?
Montana MARBLE 400ml can be applied to paper, cardboard, primed canvas, wood, glass, metal, ceramics, porcelain, stone, acrylic and other paintable materials.
How do I get the best effect with my Montana MARBLE 400ml spray?
For a marble look, the Montana MARBLE 400ml spray works best if applied at a further distance from the substrate. This allows the paint fillaments to seperate further during projection and land with a more natural look on the substrate. We recommend first experimenting on a scrap piece of material so you can gauge how far from the substrate you should spray (and at which angle), to achieve the effect you are after. If you spray closer the fillaments have less time to seperate and thus land on the substrate in the appearance of webbing.
What is the best colored surface to apply Montana MARBLE 400ml to?
There is no best colored surface depending on what appearance you are trying to achieve. However always keep in mind the effect of contrast. Spraying on contrasting colors like white MARBLE 400ml spray on a black substrate, will offer the greatest contrast.
How do I start using my Montana MARBLE 400ml spray can?
Remove the spray nozzle and turn the can upside down. Strike with your palm allowing safety ring to fall out. Shake vigerously for 2-3 minutes ensuring you can hear the mixing balls moving freely. Replace the cap back onto the top of the can valve and trigger away from substrate to test. If flowing freely you can start painting.
How long does Montana MARBLE 400ml spray take to dry?
The drying time for Montana GLITTER 400ml spray varies depending on substrate, ambient temperature and levels of humidity. The Montana MARBLE 400ml spray can be dust dry in 10 minutes, touch dry in 60 minutes but needs 24 hours minimum curing time.
Can I use other nozzles on my Montana MARBLE 400ml?
Being a femal valve can means it is possible to use different Montana caps on the Montana MARBLE 400ml spray. However the standard FLAT JET WIDE nozzles that come standard on the Montana MARBLE 400ml are optimal for achieving marble or web-like effects. Alternatively FLAT JET MEDIUM and CALLIGRAPHY caps will achieve this also and can be adjusted to create spray output lines in vertical, horizontal or variations there of. Other caps may clog, spit or not create the desired effect.
What kind of packaging materials can I use to transport / store my painted objects?
When transporting or storing painted objects, it's crucial to steer clear of air bubble wrap or similar packaging materials. These films may contain plasticizers that can gradually evaporate, resulting in unsightly marks or discoloration on the painted surface. Additionally, they can harbor silicone residues, oils, or fats from production, leading to imprints on the paint.
To safeguard your painted surfaces, it's advisable to utilize alternative packaging materials such as foam sheets, soft blankets, cardboard, or other suitable options. These alternatives provide effective protection without the risk of damaging the paintwork.
