Paint ?

Has anybody ever use the hammered black spray paint on anything? I like the looks of it and was thinking of painting fenders and tank with it. Also thinking of painting frame akind of copper or gold color. Anyone have any thoughts?

It's your bike, paint it whatever color you want. Don't ask me, I'll tell you to paint the frame yellow, and the fenders blue....

Yeah I was mainly wondering if anybody had ever used the hammered paint. If it actually looks like what's on the cap after being sprayed because if it does that's what I'm going with. Wish I knew how to photoshop so I could see what it would look like before hand.

I've seen hammered paint used on a tank... Looked kinda cool to me. They told me they were worried the clear coat would make it look different...but it didn't.
(They used a silver/grey hammered paint in a can) and then put on several coats of clear to protect the paint,

My suggestion is to paint a test piece of something and see what you think of it first.

Again, color choices are so subjective. Good news however if you don't like what you did you can always redo it...

If you're talking about the spray can hammered paint, yep I've used it before on a wrought iron gate project and it turned out awesome....even better than I was hoping it would.

Truck bed coating looks good too, depending on the application. I used it on the underside of my fenders and on the swingarm

If your going to do the "hammered" look, Apply several clear coats allowing time to dry between coats. then once you have enough on there, sand it smooth & you'll have a deep rich awesome looking paint job.

but I would totally practice prior to a final attempt.

I have used that hammered paint on some metal bifold doors. It looked great. Like has been mentioned practice on scrap it tends to change the look spraying at different distances.
