Brass effect paint.
« on: March 01, 2021, 07:27:11 pm »

     Hi,
               Which is the best brass effect paint to use on white metal
                fittings to give a realistic finish, and will the primer colour
                affect the brass finish colour.

Hi. Polish the white metal with very fine steel wool to a bright finish then paint on amber headlight lacquer (ebay) and you wont know its not polished brass!
