Glitter spray job ?

Recommended Posts

Im wondering on how to go about using glitter and spray paint cans for my aerox panels.

i have red glitter flakes that look the nuts, and the panels will be black so it would be red glitter on black.. but my question is....

Does anyone know what the best way to go about this is?? or has anyone tried it before with good or pony results ?

like black on first, then glitter on so it sticks to the sticky paint then layers of laquer? im not sure on this... i need to paint it on the cheapish side of things hence spray cans,so i can then sell it to fund something else with a turbo as im quite broke at the mo :\

but any help or advice will be brilliant :) thanks.

add glitter flakes + paint of your choice + lacquire (sp) + air compressor that allowed to to spray paint = glittery paint job

Sounds like you want a Metalflake paint job, but can't aford it. Well, I'm afraid you get what you pay for. Do it yourself with rattle cans and glitter, it'll look like you made it in school for your mum! If you want to sell the bike to fund something else, spray cans are fine but for gods sake forget the glitter!

haha yeah pretty much :) iv sprayed hundreds of pushbikes and a couple of car bonnets so i thought the whole bike would look nice in the glitter effect.. i never do a shite job tho always looks potent to me lol... my friends are telling me to lose the glitter too haha! but its different and u dont see aerox's with glitter paint lol not very often anyways..

haha ! im only spraying it as its cheaper than new panels, and the current ones have marks and diff colours on them . red glitter flake on gloss black paint will look mad i hope :)

would u say it would be better to glitter it when the paint is still a bit sticky so it sticks,, or will the 4 or 5 layers of laquer hold it in place nicely ?
