Nintendo S colored

nintendo s painted

I’m making headway on the Nintendo S by adding some color to it. The paint is Rust-oleum Metallic chrome spray paint. This paint is not without its issues, which may or may not be caused by the fact that this particular can is at least 2 years old. It sprays on very thick and doesn’t cling to the plastic very well. There are very small specks in the paint that appear black and it doesn’t leave a very smooth, mirror-like finish. I can accept a finish that doesn’t give a perfectly reflective chrome look as long as I can get a consistent texture on it, but I’m having trouble getting even that. As I mentioned, it may be the age of the paint. It may be time to get a new can; which if I do, I think I’ll test the Krylon brand. I’ve been using Krylon for another project and am very pleased with the finish.
