Recommended method for metallic colour: 
We recommend priming with a base colour in a hue similar to RO BO 17 Orangé Métallique for the most satisfying result. Furthermore, we recommend using a brush and the final strokes should be in the same direction for a harmonious surface. Use approximately 3 layers of paint for the best coverage.

Demi Ton by Ronan Bouroullec

Ronan Bouroullec has developed a palette that works for night and daytime, for warm and cold light, for the North and South. Hence the name, Demi Ton, ‘half-tone’ in French. The palette is 50/50, half and half. Demi Ton is like a great ice cream parlour – there’s a flavour for everyone. You taste the 20 colours as you see them. They taste good, even delicate. Fresh, elemental, and like everything Bouroullec is involved in, developed with precision and sensitivity.
