Molotow liquid chrome refill.
Posted by Roger Bannon on Wednesday, December 20, 2017 2:09 PM

I bought some liquid chrome refill, and sprayed it through the airbrush.  Can't say that I am disappointed with the results.

I will never claim to know it all.

Hey Roger...that looks good. Did you thin it at All? I've used this paint but haven't shot it through the airbrush yet.

Thanks Gary, no I didn't thin it at all, I just put some in the cup, and let'er rip.  Shot it at about 14 psi.

     That looks really nice. i'll have to get some myself. what did you use to clean the airbrush with afterward? i know some solvents can cause other solvent based paints to gel up rather than clean up.

Thank you rusty32rod, I just used garden variety lacquer thinner from the hardware store.  Seemed to work fine for me.  I didn't let the paint dry in the airbrush, I cleaned the airbrush immediately after application.

I like that.  Thanks for the tip.  Which bug is that?  Looking forward to more progress.

That looks fantastic, Roger. I have been curious about airbrushing this stuff.

I cracked the seal on my first Molotow pen just last week, and was blown away by the results. I am very sceptical to claims of any product to mimic chrome, but Molotow is seriously good. And very easy to use. The more I sit at the bench and think about its potential uses, the more model project conundrums that simply disappear. So many potential uses.

Last night I stopped into the LHS to see if they had any refill ink for air brushing and hand brushing. Unfortunately they didn't have any, and if they can't get any in I will get some online. This is 'must have' stuff for the model bench.

Thank you Bainford, I agree, and I feel like we have only scratched the surface with this product.  The beauty part is, I didn't need to put down a black or navy base coat before the application of the chome.

I am a recent purchaser of two 1m.m. pens , Eureka moment when first applied... One nib "failed miserably" and I looked like the cop from Terminator 2 !! LOL But I used a quality brush to apply , and all's well ! I used cellulose thinners which worked a treat , as white spirit went all weird ! I better buy a really big refill as some of my old chrome looks awfully tatty . Thanks for the heads up !!
