A little of this goes a long way, so depending on your application this may be all you need.
I've included 4 pictures of all the metallic powders I have listed, so you can compare their colors more easily by seeing them all together.
From left to right the colors are:
Fine Platinum,
Guilded Gold,
Sandstone,
Salmon,
Fire Bronze,
Superfine Rich Gold,
Superfine Pale Gold,
Light Driftwood.
Note that this is not the type of metal powder used for "cold cast" metal (added to a liquid resin which can then be polished like actual metal). Those are round shaped particles and are very heavy. A pound of those would probably occupy 10% of the volume of a pound of these flakes, which are very fine, light, and fluffy. But this is not as light as another type of fine metal flake which is made from aluminum. This is made from bronze, which is much heavier than aluminum. Bronze is traditionally made of 80 to 90 percent copper and the rest tin (brass which is similar traditionally has zinc substituted for the tin). The copper in bronze is what makes it so heavy and also more expensive than aluminum. The Wiki article on bronze is here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bronze
This particular powder is made by Edgmont, and they make very high quality, very finely divided metal powders. In general, the flake metals are more effective when added in smaller quantities to paints or thin coatings/layers of liquid plastics, rather than as fillers (heavy loading) for liquid plastics.
One interesting way to use this is as a "transfer" colorant. The same can be done with graphite and the Pearl Ex powders to give nice surface effects. Here's how you do that:
Brush some into the cavity of a silcone mold (which tends to have a 'tacky' surface), and a fine layer of the flakes will stick to the surface of the mold. Then cast an epoxy or urethane into that mold and the powder clinging to the mold surface will transfer to the positive part and give some very nice metallic effects on the surface of the casting, similar to what you get if you brush a finely divided flaked bronze or interferance powder (Pearl Ex) onto any surface. Sometimes you see a person whose skin appears to be metallic. A flaked fine metal powder is what gives that effect. Silicone rubber is the best mold surface I've found to do this with, because almost all other mold materials require release agents to be brushed onto the mold, which interfers with the effectiveness of the metal powder. Perhaps someone has found a technique that works well on urethane or latex rubber molds. I never pursued it much because I worked almost exclusively with silicone.-

Definitely my fav out of the bronze flake powders. Great stuff! Packaged with tremendous care, labeled, and the powder itself has a great non-grainy reflective quality. It's perfect.
