First use of Alsa Easy Chrome - No, it's not a car!

Recommended Posts

I posted a notification the Alsa is having a sale on their new brushable easy chrome earlier today and thought some of you might like to see what I did with it.  This model is half an airplane mounted on a mirror.  The chrome work was done first and then I masked it with Tamiya Tape and did the blue.  Once the decals were on, I sprayed it with a two part automotive urethane.   Yes, I did some of the chrome work with a brush just to see how it would work.  

 

Actually it is a gift for my grandson.  It will have a walnut frame and mount on the wall of his room.

I have not heard of that product.  Looks like it works!  You have any pictures before the clear was done?

Very cool.  Great idea and gift.  Do you mind letting us know where you got the chrome paint?

Kurt, sorry it took me a little while to get back with you.  No, I don't.  I did some testing on the speed forms that come with the kit where I masked half of it and I will say that if you couldn't see the edge of the clear you would not know which side was cleared and which was not.  I just got my order from the sale and will do another one when I get a chance.  Right now my shop is taken up with a woodworking project and not really conducive to painting. 

Unfortunately the sale is over.  Frankly, when it is on sale it is worth the money.  I got 4 oz. of both base coat and chrome including delivery for $135 on sale. When it is regular price, $139 for 2 oz. before delivery,  it is a bit much, even for my budget!  Shipping and taxes here in California was $21(UPS ground because it is flammable). 

If you are interested I would go to the ALSA website and create an account.  They send me emails with sales which is how i got this much less expensive.  Here is a link to the site.  https://alsacorp.com/easy-chrome/
