candy powdercoat is applied like candy paint, silver base then candy so you`ll need the base powdercoat too

and a oven big enough to bake a frame in

yes it can be done i could actually get it done for you , but seeing that you live in germany the shipping would not be convenient. Candy powder coat will run you bout $20.00-$25.00 per LB. you do also need a basecoat such as a white or silver wich are not as much as the candy colors, there are also some metalic flake colors that look great in blue.

Like mentioned befor, there is candy powder coat........and it does look great, and releitivly less expensive.......how ever it does not look as good or "deep" as real candy.........

If you can spray candy, it would be easer and look better if you candy painted it your'self.

It's kind of a toss up realy.........each way has it's own advantages......if it was up to me, I'll probably have to toss a coin to make my dicision :biggrin:

you can polish the frame down to a chromelike finish and powdercoat over that for a nice look.....alot of work but it can be done....also you dont need giant ovens..they have lamps that work faster than the ovens do and as long as you know the stages of the curing process and have an infared thermometer so you know when to move the lamps you can do it
