INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Give at least 45min but not more than 24hours drying time to the base coat before applying GLITTER Effect (drying time might vary due to temperature, humidity and thickness of coating). Remove lid and 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.) Applicable on many different surfaces such as paper, cardboard, primed canvas, wood, glass, metal, ceramics, porcelain, stone, acrylic and other paintable materials. After being applied, a thin shiny lacquer coat will show with a fine distribution of glitter particles. Further coats will lead to a higher density of particles and intensify of the effect. We recommend finishing your project with the Montana VARNISH Gloss to enhance the metallic effect. Please consider that the achieved final result will significantly be influenced by the color and gloss level of the undercoat. The glitter particles are carried in a clear base that can easily be covered with many common lacquer types. Can be combined with Montana GOLD, Montana ACRYLIC markers and conventional acrylic paints.
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.

DANGEROUS GOODS INFORMATION
- Dangerous goods class 2.1
- Remove lid and shake the can well for at least 3 minutes
- Spray distance should be at least 20cm/8in
- Test spray on a non-visible area
- Apply one or more thin even layers. Allow minimum 4-5 minutes drying time between coats.
The more layers, the stronger the glitter effect. After pausing shake can well again shortly to avoid sedimentation of glitter particles.
- The effect achieved is subject to the background color it is applied to. The darker the surface, the stronger the effect
- Apply GLITTER coat at a distance of 20-30cm from substrate - To enhance the Glitter effect even more, apply Montana VARNISH Gloss or Glazing Varnish when completely dry.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Montana GLITTER 400ml spray and how does it work?
Montana GLITTER 400ml spray is a medium pressure, high-grade, nitro-combi based paint, that is translucent containing silver glitter particles. These particles give a metallic effect when reflecting light that can be applied to objects or artworks of almost any kind. After being applied a thin shiny lacquer coat will show with a fine distribution of glitter particles.
What surfaces can apply Montana GLITTER 400ml to?
Montana GLITTER 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 GLITTER 400ml spray?
Montana GLITTER 400ml spray works best if applied in thin, even coats to pre-primed surfaces. The more coats applied, the more intense the effect becomes. We recommend sealing your completely dry and cured GLITTER spray with Montana GLOSS VARNISH to enhance the metallic effect.
What is the best colored surface to apply Montana GLITTER 400ml to?
Although able to be applied to any base color, Montana GLITTER 400ml has the most impressive results if applied to dark colored bases. The choice of base color and its gloss level will significantly influence the final result.
How do I start using my Montana GLITTER 400ml spray can?
Shake vigerously for 2-3 minutes ensuring you can hear the mixing balls moving freely. Remove the plastic lid and ensure the cap is firmly on the can valve before triggering. Trigger away from substrate to test. If flowing freely you can start painting.
Can I use other paints over my Montana GLITTER 400ml spray on?
Montana GLITTER 400ml spray can be over painted when completely dry and cured. It is compatible with Montana GOLD, Montana ACRYLIC markers and conventional acrylic paints. We recommend trialing on a non-visible area of your project to ensure compatibility.
How long does Montana GLITTER 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 GLITTER 400ml spray can be dust dry in 10 minutes, touch dry in 60 minutes but needs 24 hours minimum curing time.
How far should I hold the can away from the substrate while painting?
Optimum distance from substrate is normally beween 15 and 25cm depending on your task. Thin, even layers are optimal.
Are there any other points to consider?
Due to the weight of the pigments, it is important to shake the can well for 2-3 minutes before use and re-shake after each pause in use. This will always ensure the correct mix of pigment to paint base, as the pigments will settle at the bottom of the can even if not used for a short period of time.
Can I use other Nozzles on my Montana GLITTER 400ml?
The standard Montana GLITTER 400ml nozzles are not interchangeable with other Montana Cans caps. The Montana GLITTER 400ml can has a male valve which means a plastic tube portrudes out of the top of the can at the valve. The cap on the can is made to accept this tube.
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.
