Amazing how it dries immediately!
Bet some of the slot builders could make an awesome car with that stuff!

Jouef would have sold you a nice shiney chrome or gold car for 21 shillings back in the 1960s Pete!

Already done it!

We tested the system at work for a project and it works well. - It's a 14 stage process with drying times between, but it works very well.

We tested it on 6 resin trophies i'm using as prizes in the 2012 SlotRallyGB championship:


In Chrome


With gold tint applied


With Decals applied

Sorry, but the photos really don't do it justice.

I think the key is that the system demonstrated is DIY. But one can buy chrome paint that works Ok. I'm not a Mclarten fan but I could see a chrome Osterero F1?

The finish on Jexy1's trophy is absolutely astonishing. I had previously thought all non-conductive materials had been dipped to attain this level of finish.
