Instruction manuel

Before use, carefully read and observe the warning texts on the label!

Preteating surface:

  • Clean dirt and grease from surface, then remove rust.
  • If necessary, treat rust with presto deruster.
  • Fill and sand uneven surfacesIf filling is not required, spray with MoTip white primer.
  • After drying, sand the object to be coated with 600-grit sandpaper.


  • Shake the can well for 2 minutes before use.
  • Keep a spraying distance of ca. 25-30 cm.
  • Then spray several thin coats of the metallic lacquer on the dry surface at intervals of 3-5 minutes.
  • Shake the can during the process to make sure the pigmentation is evenly distributed.
  • Seal the top surface with a clear lacquer coat after drying for at least 30 minutes. Otherwise, the aluminium particles can be damaged by environmental and weather conditions.

Tips for spray painting

Protect the object and the surrounding area from spray mist. When painting small areas it is recommended that a piece of card is used as a mask, with a hole cut in it slightly larger than the area to be sprayed. The mask should be held 1 to 2 cm from the surface. With this method, the mainly part of the spray mist is brought under control. It recommends to mask parts not to be lacquered, to protect the surrounding against the spray mist.

The aerosol can should have room temperature.

Temperature should range between +10°C and +25°C, max. air humidity 60 %.

Store in a dry place. Protect from direct sunlight and other sources of heat. Use only during dry weather, in places protected from the wind, and in well-ventilated rooms. Follow the warning texts on the labels!
