    I just got some life color paints to try and am wondering are the metal colors suppose to be goopy

    I'm asking because the other colors Olive drab and neutral grey silver and aluminum are not goopy as when I shook the bottle to mix them up I heard the sound of them mixing and they looked thinner than the gun metal. Did i get a bad bottle of paint? dont really want to spend another 10$ just for one bottle.

    Don't know if you can see it but here are a couple of pictures of the bottle.

    Yeah, it looks like you got a bad one. On the up side, thicker metalic paints give better control when brush painting. Add a bit of thinner to the bottle to keep it from drying out completely.
