krylon mystique

i saw some krylon mystique spray paint at a local hobby shop and wondered if anyone out there has actually used it on a case.....i may have to try it out on my next case.......i just don't know how well it'd work on a case.......it seems kinda cool though.....

Dunno about the krylon. I paid about US$25 for my Mirage kit, bigger Wal-Marts have them for $17. All three parts, base, mid-coat and clear in the package.

The Krylon Mystique is $29 in Canada at Canadian Tire for the 3 can kit.

I've seen both, the krylon cans are quite a bit smaller than the mirage ones, but the mirage doesnt come in purple/blue. I've never used either but have been awefully tempted. Hey linear, how many kits did it take to do yours? i read your article, but cant remember.

I did it in one kit, it was a midtower supercase. And I did the bezels and drive blanks as well.

I ran a little short of the clear coat was my only problem. you could use any clear lacquer though, so says the guy at the auto paint shop. (That's one advantage of buying supplies at a paint shop--free advice.)

QUESTION: If you were spraying that type of paint a la macro black, yould you invert the order of the constituents. Normaly base mid and tp would you paint top mid then base and would it still work?

I like how on Star Trek, whenever there's a piece of equipment that isn't working properly, all they have to do to infuse it with miraculous abilities which dramatically affect the plot is to "reverse the polarity." But even in real life that's kind of true. Take an ordinary hammer. If you reverse the polarity on an ordinary hammer, you get the claw end. And while maybe that doesn't allow you to escape into the mirror universe, I haven't heard of the problem yet which couldn't be easily solved by splitting a man's skull open and running.

Arguing whether a PC is superior to a Macintosh makes about as much sense as whether having a penis is better than having a vagina. Smart people recognize the advantages and delights of playing with both.

if it were possible..i would think that the top coat would not be needed....but it's hard to say without trying it.........that would be interesting though

Yep, if I were doing the back of acrylic, I'd skip the clear and do a midcoat and a basecoat on top of it.
