    Does it exist? I'm looking for a paint, preferably in a rattle can, that is white but has a metallic appearance, much like the anodized paint most use for the Captain America shields. A white that still shows the metal underneath.

    Does it exist? Thanks.

    Probably your best bet would be a Pearl White. They are a semi transparent and would become more opaque the more layers were put down.

    Any pearls I've seen have a yellow/gold tint. I'd paint it white, then lay on a thin mist coat of silver. I painted the handle of this phaser black, then misted with silver.
