I'm going to try making some chrome finish baits. Should I use Chrome paint or the foil method? I heard the finish will dull on the chrome paint once you clearcoat. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks. Jim

Go with the foil,definitely.In my opinion, you just cannot beat a foil substrate for any natural style paint scheme. :)

Chrome paint tends to turn to flat gray under a top coat. Go with foil.

Does anyone have any idea why hat happens with chrome or nickel paint? I wanted a nickel finish on some baits. Luckilyi only tryed on one bait, and it turned into a brownish yellow collor :bull: :bull: :bull: :| :|
I never tryed it ever since, but i might try it on some "samples" to see how it goes,but i guess i'll have the same effect :cry:
