Nikolas Dye Colors are concentrated liquid dyes that can be blended with clear coatings. The result is a transparent colored coating, which fully reveals the surface finish of the base metal.

Our toners are transparent or semi-transparent coatings with the color already incorporated into the clear coating. These toners can simulate an oxidized or antique effect of the metal to match other areas or can be used to make the metal appear to be a different metal, such as making nickel appear to be bronze.

Metallic pigments that can be incorporated into one of our bronzing liquids to produce a duranodic coating. Also available are our mica pearl finishes.

Our duranodic coatings are made with pigment that contains metal flake. These are commonly used to match anodized metals.

Nikolas Daylight Colors are pigmented coatings formulated with fluorescent pigments.

Specialty Finishes: Nikolas offers a variety of specialty finishes such as...

Glazes - our glazes have all the integrity to be finish coats, yet are used as middle coats to give an antique or “worn” decorative look to a product

Crackelac - is a specialty finish in which a coat of contrasting color Crackelac is sprayed over a suitable base coat. Then upon drying the Crackelac shrinks and allows the base color to show through the irregular cracks. This produces an antique effect similar to a cracked varnish found on antique furniture and picture frames.

Copper Slurry - is a conductive coating for metallizing non-conductors so that electroplating can be done such as in bronze baby shoes.
