I just bought a can of alclad for the first time today. All it says on the back is to paint it flat black first, then spray Alclad over it. I've tried this process on a Gundam Beam saber, but after 2 coats, all i'm getting is a dark gray with some silver streaks on the blade, and some silver on the hilt, not unlike what i can do with ordinary silver paint. What am i doing wrong? BTW, i'm using Alclad II chrome for lexan. Apparently that's the only alclad my local shops have. I was wondering if that had anything to do with it.
