RS-MaxxMudd is what it is and does what it does not so much because of it's "color" but how it's combination of components work together.
A few have in the past tried to dispute this about RS-MaxxMudd and Silver Fire...especially concerning the RGBY Colorant....saying all that is needed is to color match the end product, and that the Mica isn't really of any advantage. But gosh....where is the proof by example? Tain't any.
Anyone with any real knowledge of how reflective properties within a mixture work knows better...or certainly should.
With no small amount of effort, great pains have been taken through the development of these advanced mixes to use the best possible components that are readily available. Much emphasis is made on "readily available" 'cause if ya can't get what ya need....yur not gonna wind up with want your lookin' fer.
And just as important is how the "color" of the chosen ingredients meld together and produce the right shades and degree of neutrality...that is to say create no adverse color shifts when they are hit with the intense projected light. Different paint Mfg often use different ways to reach the same color, and sometimes mixing those colors up with others doesn't pan out the way one would have them to.
As for rolling onto BOC...yeah, it's been done. But successes in doing so have been measured with a very small ruler.
Spraying onto Cloth has always been best,,,and remains so. If you have the gear to do so (what kind of HVLP rig ya got?) then avail yourself of the method that has been determined to be best.
Hey...I always loved the Panny 100. It was...and remains a great PJ.
