Hi all

Unusually question. I am starting a new project with some brass finish parts.  I have been experimenting with spray can brass (specifically Rustoleum) but not getting the "metallic shine" I desire.  I know that Alclad has a high shine brass, but I do not have an airbrush.  I do have those disposable Preval sprayers.  The Alclad instructions call for it to be sprayed at 15-20 psi.  The Preval sprayers go at around 60-70 psi. Anyone have any idea what would happen spraying the Alclad at 60-70 psi?

Thanks for any information

My guess is that it will dry before it hits the plastic and create a coarse finish, similar to 120 grit sandpaper

That's what I was thinking. I spray Alclad at 8psi in a fairly constant short fanning motion to achieve my results.
