I liked a color of nail polish I saw at the store while waiting for the wife to gather her H&BA goods. It was pretty cheap, at $1.50 for 1/2oz jar (or there about). It was called Sassy Lassy (green metal flake) by Sinful Colors. I quickly found out that it was a clear coat with green metal flake and no actual pigment, but pressed on...lol I made a pun... So, green flake over Testors Flat Black, over Model Master Green Zinc Chromate, and over Blue Angel Yellow. The yellow, was first and OBVIOUSLY not green at all! The Zinc Chromate was second (the middle spoon), so I tried the flat black and loved it. So I mixed up the whole bottle about 30% paint to 70% lacquer thinner and shot at a very low pressure... about 15psi through my Paasche VL with #3 needle. Found a kit that needed this color and tried it out. This is what I got: VID_20190323_212858758.mp4
I have been trying to get this one painted for quite some time. This is attempt #5. I tagged this as "cheap paint" because I used Folk Art Craft Acrylic paint. The color is Sequin Black, thinned with Createx reducer and some balancing clear mixed in to help with flow. I need to wet sand some dust specks and then clear coat and polish, but at this point I am very happy with the results.
