I want to paint the drive bay covers of my case aluminum. There is no aluminum Krylon Fusion.

Here is the Krylon's bad webpage about Krylon Fusion. Click on the can of paint to see the colors' names.

This site has the most colors of all the sites I could find.

1. How difficult would it be to mix colors to make Aluminum to match a Sunbeam Fan controller?
2. What other paint could I use to paint plastic that comes in an aluminum color?

Thanks

I was at autozone a couple weeks ago, and noticed a spray can called "adhesion promoter". Basically it's made to be a primer on the plastic parts of cars, to use normal auto paint over it.

Might be what you're looking for.




Why oh why doesn't fuzion make grey white and black primers???

That sounds good. I'll look into that.

Is krylon fusion just vinyl die?

No, it chemically bonds with plastic.
