Easy Magnesium Effect

Recommended Posts

I was goofing around with some engine parts earlier, and I kinda found a quick way to get a magnesium effect on parts..... This supercharger was a chrome piece. I just sprayed it with a very light, non-covering coat of TS-21, then a quick, thin mist coat of DupliColor black sandable primer....

This would look better if I had some dull coat of some sort, but I thought it pretty convincing....

Here's a torq-thrust mag that I painted some years back.... I used dupli-color hotrod grey primer for the spokes and aluminum for the outer rim....
