Has anyone tried the Mirage paint from Plasti-Kote(I think)?
Are they hard to apply? How much paint do I need for a PC case? And other things I should be aware of when using it
I got my midtower and a few test pieces done with one kit. Most people have reported to me that it took them more than one kit.
Chumly gave you solid application advice. I'll just add don't
sand the middle coat at all.
The color shift effect may disappoint you--you get color A when the light source is in line with your view angle, and color B when the light is opposite your viewing angle. If your workpiece has compound curves, it will show off the effect pretty nicely, but most cases don't. So in a typical setting where the light isn't changing, the effect isn't a real knockout.
It's hard to photograph too. All the flash shots came out purple, with no gold--I had to go outside and shoot in natural light to get any gold to show.
