House of Kolor has an interesting line of metallic paints. Look 'em up.

an easy way to acheive a "brushed" effect is to spray some silver (the less metallic the silver is, the better to look) down and then take a scotchbrite pad & drag it through the silver paint. you DO NOT want to use pressure as the sanding could return to haunt you in the end (after clear).
try it on a spoon or a spare body, if you have one, before you do it on your freshly prepped body...just in case.
also...a little extra note...if you can drag the scotchbrite pad through the paint before it fully flashes, the result will look better.
remember, less is more.
again, try it on a spoon or a spare body or hood or something like that so that yoiu can play with the effect before you go with the final.

hope this helps
