amazing thank you!
YT Capra DIY Rainbow Sprinkles teaser. I'm quite pleased with how it's turning out so far!
Might as well share this here too
Got me thinking about dog tooth ...
Does anyone have any advice on matt-ing up a glossy powdercoat? I wondered if basically I could give my surly a once (or twice) over with some coarse sandpaper or wetndry and it would go to a nice matte finish

Epic off the scale work. : )
That's going really well. Reminds me of memphis design.
Thats was scary in places but really fun to work on. I helped with the tube bending for the rear triangle and built those wheels. Gutted I've never seen the finished thing in exhibition. Huge sypmpathy for you guys ;-)
excellent reading. thanks for the post. Will post my Fanini (I know) out one day and get it refinished. : )
3m Trizact Pad 3000 grit would be my recommendation.
If you can make it to SE22 with a packet of biscuits I'll give you an old one.

Thanks! I'm in Manchester so unlikely but that gives me a starting point
DM me your address.
Can you get this from a rattle can?
I wouldn't have thought so.
These effects are usually achieved using what is effectively a translucent powder pearl suspended in a ckear base over a black basecoat.
To get these effects consistent, you would need a particularly well controlled application from a 'proper' gun.
I don't know of a rattle can that could achieve constant and consistent pressure or a wet enough application to get this right.
I'm happy to be proven wrong though because these products are EXPENSIVE!
Ah no problem, was just an idea. Thanks for the reply
If you find evidence to the contrary, do share because I'm sure many more people would have it were it not for this price tag...
(Doesn't include VAT or shipping or the products involved to mix and make it ready to paint or the black groundcoat!)
Could give that a crack but also not cheap
