Thanks for the suggestion, Steve. Wish the silver powder was not so expensive. This is a large project. 70 feet wide by 11 feet high. That would be a huge chunk of money.

I'm considering Rustoleum "aluminum". It's a metallic paint that has a silvery gray look to it. My concern is that when I dilute the paint with water, as to allow the grain of the wood to come through, that it will lose its shimmer. Anyone use this product?

Even if the shimmer is lost with a paint dilution, do you think a gloss sealant would restore the shimmer?
That paint should be a solvent base, not water based. Try a sample without reducing.
