Default Painting stockers hyperblack...

So duplicolor has come out with a new metalcast color paint called smoke. The paint allows you to still see the base coat and adds a layer of transparent color (which ever you choose from duplicolor) and gives a great look. I'm thinking about doing black (not sure if I wanna go gloss or flat) basecoat and a few layers of the duplicolor smoke metalcast paint for a possible hyperblack effect. And to top it off I'll put a few layers of clear on top of it.

That sounds pretty sweet. Now if I had only know about this a couple of weeks ago before I painted my winter BBS's with Dulicolor Graphite. Definitely post some pics though if you do it. I would do mine like you described so you could see but I cant talk myself into painting them again without them having even been on the car once

I'm doing mine in Dupi Graphite now. Good stuff, but I sat in the store for about 30 minutes trying to decide. Then I went home and then went back for another 30 minutes before I could decide. Once I started painting though...sweet.

I did a test pannel and it didn't turn out with the effect I wanted, so I scrapped the idea and went with rustolum metallic black, it looks awesome!

You know, I picked up the Metalcast "Smoke" spray, and I've messed around with it, going over a bright silver...and it's turning out not like I thought either. Just gray's it out. I'm going to mess with it somemore before I commit to it for my summer wheels this weekend. I'll post some pics.

I tried the Duplicolor Metalcast when I did the headlights on my old bugeye, I couldn't make it look good. I ended up using some high heat semigloss black and was pretty happy with it.
