Default Chrome Paint in canada

I was wondering if anyone knows where I could get some chrome paint (like spazstix liquid metal) in Canada. I haven't been able to find any.

A while back Hobby wholesale brought in some chrome paint. Came in a bottle about the size of the pactra fast color bottles.

Aye, you can get Alclad II lacquer chrome #107 from Hobby Wholesale. As for the SpazStix, I believe you'd have to order directly from the SpazStix people, unless one of the LHS's decides to bring in a batch.

When you're using the Alclad, shoot it at about 15psi, and don't wait more than a few minutes between coats - of which you should be able to get away with 2, perhaps 3. On top of that, it is a lacquer based paint and must be cleaned up with the appropriate thinner - so be very careful, and make sure you've got plenty of ventilation. Pretty standard stuff of course, but it's 'Big Safety' stuff that can't be mentioned too much.

Cheers, and happy painting!

Edit: Just remembered, they've carried it at Great Hobbies as well, so there you go. Plenty of options.

Default Spazstix Chrome

Raceway Hobbies in Medicine Hat (403-526-5288) stocks the Spazstix chrome liquid metal, and it is a superior product to the alclad in our opinion.
Let me know if you need some.
