And suddenly start getting concerns. Isn't this a very "glossy" mix? I am suddenly afraid of hotspots? I am especially thinking of all the silver in the mix.
Actually, the 8 oz. of Silver Metallic
is far less than that of the other versions of this advanced mix. And properly sprayed, it should have NO
glossy appearance at all.
is trying the RS-MM-Retro
version, a mix that is completely reverse to RS-MM-LL because it contains 2x the amount of Silver Metallic of the LL
and 1/2 the amount of Pearl.
Also, he decided to use Rust-Oleum
versions of the Silver / Pearl
, which results in a much darker mix.
His sheen issue is due to the paint going up far heavier with each coat than recommended, and also the sheer amount of the Metallic content in relation to the darkness of the shade.
Taken into direct comparison to Silver Fire v2.5
which has equal amounts of Rust-Oleum Silver and Pearl
, (which creates a balance between them), the RS-MM-LL is actually much less "reflective" in one sense, owning it's higher gain to a preponderance of Pearlesence
Are you going to Spray or Roll? Please note that the RS-MM-LL
mix is known to be the only advancd ix w3e suggest can be rolled....so that alone helps dispel and concerns about overt sheen....
although rolling will increase any tendency toward a sheen far more than spraying does.
