Molotow chrome ??
Posted by Treehugger Dave on Tuesday, March 28, 2017 11:19 AM

This seems to be a fairly new product, at least it is to me.

I see it advertised on Ebay in different size pens, and also refill bottles.

Has anyone tried spraying this in the refill bottle threw an airbrush, and if so what kind of results??

It's kinda spendy compared to other spray chromes, but maybe it's worth it ??

I love Mecum Auctions and Barrett/Jackson auctions.

I bought all the model stuff I wanted for Christmas because no one else would spend that much on me Laugh Laugh

Couldn't say about using an airbrush, but I got pretty good results just using the markers.

I've got one on order, waiting to try some of my own experiments.

I've been reading quite a lot about this stuff in other places. Duribility is an issue, though some have had luck clear coating with Alclad Aqua Gloss, but other clears reduce the effect to silver paint. I think Bob Downy has tried airbrushing this stuff but I haven't seen the results yet.

Maybe never as I'm sure they have their own projects that they're workin' on. Outside of model building, I really don't see too much use for liquid chrome pens.

I have a Molotow Liquid Chrome pen and I love it!  It's great for detailing parts, touching up chrome pieces cut from the sprue, or adding a touch of chrome where there isn't any.  I have also used it on the wheels to a Revell  2015 Mustang GT snap kit.

Thanks guy's for the great responses Thumbs Up.

Does the Molotow require a black base, and how does it compare to Alclad or Spaz Stix?

Molotw does not require any base coat. It can be applied to any color uder the rainbow.

The main issue is it needs a lengthy drying time (2 weeks minimum) before it can be handled without dulling.

I have done test with one of pens on a white plastic spoon, to see how long it takes before it can be handled.
