Chrome Paint

6 posts in this topic

First let me say this site is awesome! Happy to be here. Now I have been spraying baits for about 3 months now. I would like to duplicate the chrome color on some rattletraps. Does anyone know where I can get some ? Thank you,

Jimmy

There are a lot of chrome paint out there.

All I have seen turn rather dull and gray

looking after clearcoating.

I have yet to find a chrome paint that looks good. Even fresh. But after you get a clear coat on they really look bad.

To bad you can't powdercoat your lures - columbiacoatings.com has a chrome that is pretty awesome. 8oz. goes for $9.99. Toll free number is 866 388 7730

If you want a real chrome finish, do this:

Get some Duro all-purpose spray adhesive,

and some Poly Flake polyester glitter.

Any polyester glitter may work. The glitter

must be extra fine. Spray whatever you want

to look like chrome with the Duro and then

sprinkle the glitter on. Mash the glitter down

into the glue with very light pressure.

Let it sit about 5 min. Then, wipe off

the excess glitter with a soft rag.

You will have a beautiful chrome finish

that will not turn gray with a top coat.

It will work on a painted surface.

The glitter comes in several colors.

I did some scales like this, I posted the pic here before,

and here it is again.

Cautions: Donot spray a large amount of glue on the surface.

Don't rub the the glitter off really hard.

Practice on a scrap piece of material.
