Mission Models Chrome and Gloss Black Base are very easy to use. Although they can be thinned to meet your needs, there is no need as both can be used straight from the bottle. The Mission Models Gloss Black Base is what allows the chrome to "reflect" like a mirror. The smoother and glossier the Gloss Black Base is applied, the better the chrome effect will be.
Applying Mission Models Chrome finish requires a different technique than using standard Mission Models paints. Please see the FAQ section of their website for additional information and application instruction.
Mission Models Chrome is made with finely processed 6061 Aluminum and is extremely durable when dry.
