Metalcast is the answer to dressing up your chrome and metal surfaces. To achieve the anodized metal look on non-metal or painted surfaces, first prime with the high heat resistant, fast drying ground coat MC 100 (sold separately). Then turn ordinary chrome pieces into a bright, transparent-colored metallic finish in an easy, one step process. Specially formulated to work over properly prepared shiny, bare metal, faux chrome-like surfaces for a spectacular metallic finish. Metalcast is a durable enamel finish that is oil, gas and heat resistant to 500 degrees Fahrenheit intermittently. Use it on both interior and exterior accessories-even high heat applications under the hood. Features the EZ Touch fan spray nozzle.

The Metal-Cast line-up is essentially a 'clear' pigment paint. It's like a dye or tint, commonly referred to as a candy paint. Therefore, the base coat, (beginning) color, texture matters - because it become a part of the final look. And since this type of paint is basically a transparent color, it essentially colorizes what ever you want to paint. I've had success tinting raw sanded aluminum parts for that 'anodized effect. However, to get consistent/uniform anodized effect on most projects, it's a good idea to paint your part with the 'Ground' product, as this is a metallic/silver speck paint.
Many thin coats !! I can't stress the importance of applying just a small thin light coat, allow to dry, then repeat. We tend to want to lay the paint down all at once - RESIST THAT URGE ! First, the nozzle doesn't quite layout an even coat regardless of how smooth you are. So forcing yourself to lay down many many multiple coats will actually help you sum a more evenly average coverage - which is a good thing. Second, the quick drying of the aerosol propellant cools the part, which means if laying down too much at one application will attract more moisture (condensation) thus leads to cloudy/milky flaws. Again, avoid this by keeping very thin coats at a time, allow to dry and part to warm back up. One good thing, the thin coats flash-off (dry) pretty quick, so another coat can be ready within minutes. I found a heat-gun (or heated hair drier) handy for accelerating the application of coats and getting a cloud-free build-up of color. Again, humidity will cause clouding/milky opaque results, so the heated air drying helps keep the part warm and chase away any moisture, keeping each layer crystal clear.. Lastly - shake the can well, and always shake this can except when actively spraying. Good luck !
Compatible base, take your time - thin coats - that's the secret to great results with this product. Hope this was helpful.
The photos attached are of the finished product and the nastiness that resulted from my second set of coats. The final finish is essentially the same color as after five coats, plus duplicolor's clear coat for wheels.
