      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

Prepping resin for chrome paint

4 posts in this topic

Posted

I want to paint some resin parts with duplicolor chrome. From what I've seen, it's pretty close to Alclad, which is good considering I don't have an airbrush. My question is, how do I clean and prep the resin to be chrome painted?

Hi,

Three easy steps:

1) Make sure the part is at least 10 miles away from any grease, wax, dirt or any other foreign material. In other words: squeaky clean

2) Don't stop at sanding it smooth. Polish it! Any small imperfection, sanding line or flaw will be amplified at least 10 times.

3) Take it easy and don't rush it

4) Have fun! :)

Thanks,

I would shoot it over gloss black.
