    Spazstix Spray Paint/ Normal Spray Paint warping (the helmet)?

    Remove this ad: become a supporter
    Did anyone used spazstix chrome paint for their helmets? Planning on buying one instead of going to a chroming store and pay a lot for it.

    but my main question is that will spray painting warp the helmet in some way?

    It won't warp it all, but it doesn't look very good either.

    If you want a chrome look, go for chrome. Otherwise do a metallic silver, I tried Spazstix with my airbrush and it was nowhere near consistent enough to wear outside.

    I used spazstix on my first helmet, one can was barely enough. And then if you clear coat it duels out, and if you don't it will rub off. Here's a picture of it, bit beat up because of Halloween parties.

    hey you guys, take a look at this chroming technique: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AYGCircO8S8
    well..

    edit: in another video i hear the guy saying the piece is pre heated, ready for the chrome to be applied (in portuguese). Its seams that some spray chrome methods really involves heating, so you have to be careful with your service provider. In other videos the guy washes the piece before chroming it and also uses deionized water during the process, which makes me believe it`s a "cold" process

    the same guy, chroming plastic:

    maybe the pre heating servers only to help the paint dry faster.
    and is seams i found my chromming guy here in Brazil (pretty hard to find i must say..)

    The heating would only be for the paint to dry faster, all the cold wet chroming methods are Tollens reaction.
