Ken...

Can you mix colors to get the effect of acid wash anno? Was thinking of translucent smoke chrome mixed with candy orange over polished.

I can't, no ..... remember this is powder not a liquid. It would most likely be speckled colors.

Translucent Candy Orange.

For that finish the parts need to be polished.

I am taking orders right now.

Ken, if I may, acid-washed look with powder coat CAN be done (I wont show examples here, because I dont want to clutter your business thread), but yes it is a bit speckled with certain color combinations. It is also an overly involved process and involves the use of chemicals, you also cant see the finished product until it is baked so there is a lot of trial and error.

Just wanted to let you know.

The fades you do are just
That blue to purple is phenomenal.

I never said it can't be done, I said I can't do it.
I have seen your work on the Custom Cocker forum.
It looks good. I also remember you stating you weren't letting your secrets out on how you did it either.
I'm always trying new thing so we will see.

Ken, do you have any pictures of what your Gold or Translucent Gold powder coating looks like? I have a gun in mind that I would like to do a "Golden Gun" theme, and I'm not sure how durable real gold plating is.

EDIT: The shinier, the better
