I just found that post and found it super helpful.  What is the purpose behind the application of the Future floor polish?  Simply protection?  I'm really nervous to try it out, I just bought an airbrush and I want to try creating an aged bronze finish.

Yeah, the future is a clearcoat to protect the base metal colors from the thinners. Good luck!

Couldn't get it to work right... it's a whole other art form and skill set and eventually I'll try it again on something with more patience.
