top right pic looks great IMHO..
Thanks, I like that one too, it’s a little too deep when not in a lot of light though, which is probably the byproduct of the matte black primer base coat and the shade of metallic “chrome” I used (I was out of gloss black and white and had the painting itch). I’m happy to know what can still be achieved with a matte base coat. I’m also going to test some satin clear coats as the suit has a more satin sheen to it than a real high-gloss. And I’m going to get the right color red to mess with!
