If i remember I will have a look at work tomorrow. I'm sure our painters had some once upon a time. If they have i'm sure i could " borrow " some.

metal flake was around when i was a sprayer you used to need a special spray gun to apply the paint the gun had a padle in the pot which mxed the paint as you sprayed outherwise all the metal flake used to just sit in the bottom of the pot and not get applied. the gun also had a larger nozel to allow the flakes to be sprayed. i gave up spraying about 12 years ago (still dabling) so may well have new method to apply.

Its also on ebay, I thought it was called metal flake ?? (or was chiipys post spelling error?)

Get the smallist sized flake, so its easy to cover with laqure.

Thats about all i know on this subject :cool:

My glitter work fine on normal spray gun. Maybe the size of the glitter has got smaller over the years??

I didnt have a paddle either, But could be worth keeping the spray pot jiggleing about to stop them sitting in the bottom.

I used these guys a little while ago for some candy blue and silver, the service was great and the guy really knew his stuff, I would say ring them an ask away about guns, flakes, anything to do with paint really :)

oh an not all thier product range is on the web site, the blue I got isn't listed but they sorted it out for me so if you do want something a bit different they may be able to help there too
