"Metal Flake"

The metal flake artistic technique, thanks to its extreme shine and luster, is par excellence the style icon of the 70s old school custom-style achievements.

Our technique differs from that usually used in the field of traditional coating.
Our bases are not made by spraying the metal flakes suspended in transparent color but they are dry applied in different layers, in various weights and prismatic shapes.

This process takes a long achievement time and more use of clear polish layers, but gives the object's volume extreme compactness, adamantine brightness and unmatched brilliance.

Silver version

The silver metal flakes are the most used among all the various available colors (pale gold, rich gold, orange, red, blue, etc.)
Its inherent brilliance and neutral light allows to get, through further applications of transparent glass or kandy colors, infinite shades and bright colors typical of the 70s old school paint jobs.
