Chrome Spray Paint and Markers
Posted by SuperFord97 on Thursday, March 30, 2017 11:21 AM

What Spray Paint is the best for chrome finishes on grilles and bumper, and what markers would be great to use on side trim and window trim.

With the markers I used a few but they were the very fine tip and would bleed out after using it a couple of models.

Also is there any chrome paint that is close to chrome plated surfaces, that is not to expensive. 

Thanks for any information.

For chrome paint I use "Alclad II".

A lot of people swear by "Spaz Stix".

Keep in mind, you will never get a true chrome finish with these paints.

You'll get much better results sending out your parts for replating.

Most times, better than original kit chrome.

As far as markers go, the new "Molotow" chrome markers give an excelent chrome finish for small parts, but it's very fragile & highly prone to dulling with any handling.

In this case you're much better off putting in a little practice time & using "Bare Metal Foil" for body trim.

I have kits that were foiled 25 years ago that look as good as they did the day that I foiled them.

Thanks For The Info, Will Have To Try Those Markers and understand that the paint is not going to look like a real chrome plated surface, just what to make some of my old promo cars that have some missing chrome or no chrome on the bumpers look better than just ugly random molded colored bumpers.
