It doesn't look like chrome anymore though.
That's just a capture of the comment, the image you're seeing is just a random shot of m from his video, not the end result.
I watched the video. You can thin the chrome with simple isopropyl alcohol and get even better results. That clear coat looks to work well.
I'm looking at getting one of these Molotow chrome pens, and was wondering some things first, if you guys can help?
Is it applied like paint or like a felt tip pen? What are the chances of streaks or lines between application sweeps? Is it naturally super shiney and chromey or does it need something applied to it? Would it work on something that has been painted with Tamaya acrylic already?
It's a paint pen. Give it a shake. Press the tip to release some chrome. Draw it on.
Chances are quite good. You're supposed to apply it heavy/wet so the chrome will work properly. Marker strokes are possible if you go back after it has settled. You'll ruin it if you go back once it's began to cure. I've found that as it dries it gets thinner, shinier and more durable. As the chrome settles, it leaves little gaps between the marker strokes. Those need to be filled while the chrome is wet.
It's naturally shiny. No primer or black base coat needed.
Cheers. Sounds like something I'll give a go at soon.
What's a good hardener?
The airbrush application is intriguing me. I wonder if the end result will be better than ALCAD.
The same from what I've seen but without the tedious prep work.
Υου think it will work without thinner applications on an airbrush? The molotw I mean.
Yes. The results are better though if you thin it with regular isopropyl alcohol though.
the alclad, the klear kote suggested is the gloss one?
