I use a process called vacuum metalizing. The same process I use for the Indiana cherubs and idols I sell.

I thought I'd post a bit of an update to this.

I am building a workshop and renovating and extending our new home. Once that's complete I'm investing in a Spraychrome system.

So if it's not nailed down..........

1. How did I miss this thread?

2. How does the spray chrome compare to the vac-metalized on the finished product?

Congrats on the shop and home add on! :)

Hi mate,

1. No idea!

2. It is pretty indistinguishable from vacuum metalizing... I'd say it is easier with the correctly prepped surface and can be done in a spray booth with a drip tray..... It is lacquered afterwards to protect the surface.
