HOW TO USE MMP CHROME AND GLOSS BLACK BASE:
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 MMP Gloss Black Base is what allows the chrome to "reflect" like a mirror. The smoother and glossier the better the chrome effect will be. Replicating a Chrome finish is not like applying standard MMP paints. There is a method for applying the MMP Chrome and Gloss Black Base that takes practice to perfect. Application is not difficult but "practice makes perfect. When applied correctly these paints replicate a chromed finish. The more methodical you are when applying these paints, the better your results will be. It is a finish that cant be rushed. MMP Chrome is made with finely processed 6061 Aluminum and is extremely durable when dry.
The MMP Chrome system works best on smaller detail parts (wheels, trim, exhaust, etc.). We also know that many modelers would like a chrome or bright finish on larger sections and "flat" panels such as on car bodies, aircraft, and Sci-Fi models. Using the appropriate technique, MMP Chrome can be used on such pieces but as with many airbrushing and painting techniques, practice will be rewarded with superior results. Please also note that our chrome can be sprayed over any base color.
