    Hi everyone, 1st post tho I have been reading for a while
    Any way as the topic says, the kind of paint i'm after is that stuff like on cars that changes colour when you look at it from different angles like some is blue and green, or red and orange(or maybe gold), I think it's called mirage duplicolour paint, Ideally just in regular spray paint cans ( I can get hold of 25 litre cans but they are rather expensive and may be a bit overkill for what I need it for :hehe:)
    well if anyone can help i'd really appreciate it am looking to paint my case
    thanks in advance, and hoping you all make me feel welcome

    "flip flop" paint. Or "chameleon". Or "iridescent".

    Cheers

    in the states, it comes in 3 of our chain auto parts stores.. in the spray cans you are talking about, so it does exist, but over there.. can't help you there,

    duplicolor make it.... no idea where you can get it in other countries, but most auto parts stores in the states carry it... its a 3 part system, base, shift and clear

    Kmart and WalMart carry it as well, although WalMarts isn't Duplicolor. Again, not sure that helps across the pond.

    Also called metal flake paint (UK), You could try a specialist car paint retailer/supplier, it will not come cheap though, and being car paint you will need to get hold of spraying gear and compessor.

    There is also a new one just starting that uses hologram material as the flake, very cool indeed!

    if you live in the UK look out for Fast Car look for the saxo ont he August edition.

    make sure you got mirage paint, and not pearlescent or metal flake, as those are two totally different things and neither of them are what you want.

    Yeah sure, If someone would host pics for me, (or point me to a good host which I could link to) when it's done (hopefully Friday/Saturday) I'll get some before/after pics for you to look at, or if anyone wants a guide/project log i'll try and sort something out.
    Thanks again

    *edit: lol @ "what's a dremel" (over there <-- under my name), i'd be lost without one
