How to use silver metallic latex glaze

All I am trying to do is paint a pressed wood dresser to achieve a glossy metallic silver finish, how do I use Benjamin Moore 62020 Silver Metallic Latex Glaze? Do I need a base coat? Do I simply clean furniture item and paint? Thanks
Kathryn

Definitely makesure the dresser is clean. Then use Benjamin Moore 1614 Delray Gray http://www.myperfectcolor.com/en/color/5055_Benjamin-Moore-1614-Delray-Gray as the base coat. This will give you better coverage. You'll still likely need several coats of the glaze after that.

Thank you so much for the information That was a really quick reply. I am pleased you reminded me about base coat. I appreciate the tips I definately would not have remembered the base coat. Will this really be shiny silver when done or is it more of an irridescent shimmer?

It will be somewhat shiny, but not high gloss. it is probably more of a satin. If you want it more shiny, you could try coating it with a clear coating like the Benjamin Moore Stays Clear - available on this website at http://www.myperfectcolor.com/en/product/103705_Benjamin-Moore-422-Stays-Clear-High-Gloss-Waterbased-Polyurethane-Gallon
