Special directions for applying Gravity Colors chrome paint: 

The secret to a good chrome effect is to achieve a perfectly dark glossy undercoat, the best way to get that finish is to spray a thin undercoat with black enamel paint. 

The downside of enamel paint is that is more delicate to work with, and it needs to be completely dry to avoid reactions with other paints. Our testers came to the conclusion that 24 hours was enough for a thin undercoat to completely dry in appropriate weather conditions. If the undercoat is a bit thicker, and/or the temperature is colder or there's more humidity, then it would need more time to cure.

In several tests completed, the results showed that the more time allowed for the base coat to dry, the more glossy and a better mirror effect finish was able to be achieved when sprayed the samples after 72 hours, but such a long cure time is really not necessary.

Another thing to consider, is the application of the base coat. Chrome paint contains very small flakes in a liquid which is extremely sensitive to be sprayed properly. When paint particles fall on a glossy surface, they position themselves in a flat position, so paint must fall onto the base coat almost dry to make that happen.  That is why it’s recommended to spray with more air than paint and experiment with spraying a little further away than normal.  Puddle or accumulation of paint must be avoided which would settle the flakes in a random way. The use of a dual action airbrush is highly recommended to be able to control how much paint is actually delivered to the surface so that the right effect is achieved. If the chrome base coat is applied too heavy, then it will look like a bright silver rather than chrome.
