Non-standard Metallic paints sources 1 Year, 11 Months ago  
I'm looking for some non-standard metallic paints for a project I'm working on. In example metallic blue, metallic green, metallic red...etc. Does anybody know some good quality/high metal flake content paints like these? Thank you for any help you can give me in advance.

does the automotive touch up paint work well on platic minis? Does anyone have experience with this?

No experience whatsoever. Except, y'know, on a car. Where it works really well. Goes on nice and smooth. Just shake the heck out of it before you open the bottle.

I'd recommend putting it on top of a good primer.

And I'd test it on a throwaway piece.

Try your local craft store. There are a few brands of acrylic and watercolor metallics (or pearls). Don't forget to check fabric paints.

Again, no experience with these.

Vallejo Metallic Medium -- www.acrylicosvallejo.com/gb/auxiliaries-model-paints.html

Its not amazing, but with some experimentation you can mix it with pretty much any color to produce a metallic version of it.

Humbrol enamels range do a range of really bright/strong metallics. I'd test them first if you were intending to put them on plastic though?
