looking for some pics of heavy metal flake paint... any body have some?
Really the only good ones I have are from Vegas. Flake on the East Coast isn't the same as flake on the West Coast.
heavy chunky flake in in the maroon & yellow.
red pinstipe designs add some dimension to the maroon.
purple pinstripe outlining the flames is a super vibrant contrast agaist yellow, too.
these pics, unfortunately, do capture the flavor.
thought i'd share em anyway.

This is a buddys longroof I sprayed a few weeks back it was about a size 90
What base did you use under your blue flake? Is the flake itself Metalflake Sky Blue?
These are in progrees shots using .015" flake
Finished after about 2 lbs of flake and 7 gal of clear.
