    Yup. That is right. I figured I would do a nice and shiny pretty Prime.
    Basic steps, gloss black, mirra chrome, then candy all the colors over the chrome. So the only pic I can load is the one of Primes head before the chrome is buffed.

    UPDATE 6/20/09

    Okay, so I have ran into a couple of issues with ALSA MIRROR CHROME. But the results are pretty good. This being the first round, I have learned A LOT.
    I still have to do a few more candy coats and pinstrip the flames along with other issues.
    Here is ICE-IMUS PRIME...(wip)

    If you have any questions about painting like this, just ask!!! Or if you knw tricks, DO TELL!!!!:popcorn 


    Final verdict.... Just use a nice silver for anything with color on it!!! The problems are(the same with cars and bikes) the flames. The trick I tried this go around did not work as well. BECAUSE!! You have to mask the flames, spray the candy, THEN HAVE THE EXACT FLAME NEGATIVE flame pattern. So this is what I will do on the next one!!!!

    By the way candy is another word for transparent!!!!

    UPDATE I wasn't sure I would complete this guy, but I did. He can transform, but there is no doubt that he will chip and scratch. I have actually changed my mind about making another one!!! I can't wait!! As I see things I want to correct on the next one! If I have time.

    (Thanks Heat Guy for the gift)

    Hah! I was hoping you'll do this. Are you gonna do true flames in chrome (if that's even possible).

    HAHAH. Thanks. I figure it is time to see if I remember how to paint!!! Plus you have set a really high bar with "SHINEY TRANSFORMERS"!!!!!!!

    But for fire to work right, it needs to be on a dark background because you paint the illusion of light!!! It would look like blurry spaghetti if I tried it on this!

    Interesting, looking forward to seeing how this turns out - your painting is usually pretty impressive. Candy paintjob, eh? Bit o'pinstriping going on round the flames, by any chance?

    Hey re you going to be using clear colors pearls metalics or regular opaque colors?? I've found that if you sprayed model maters true blue pearl over the exsisting plastic that its pretty close to the real color.


    Edit, nvm I just reread your first post

    Well, sounds good. Let's see how strong this Mirra chrome turns out to be. I have actually had no problem with it, beside adhesion with top coast of something. That is the same issue with using this stuff on motorcycles or cars. Top coats have a hard time adhering to it. I know guys who have painted a motorcycle tank with it, cleared it, and a week later the guy came back because wind blew the clear off!!!!!!

    I still gotta fix a few things, but pinstripes will be done in a couple of days!!!!! And thanks by the way!!
