I just shot some chrome and following the instructions hit it with clear as soon as it came out of the oven. When I took the chrome coat out of the oven it looked fantastic. After the clear it looked gray and had dark marks all over it. I want to do a bike frame and and trying it on the swing arm bar – so it’s small and easy to practice on.
I’m looking for suggestion on how to do this correctly.
Also, is the clear necessary? I did the chrome on an old fender about 6 months ago without the clear and it still looks good.
