    My first batch ever. Cheap toaster oven, Prismatic Powders Bronze Chrome powder. Shake and bake method. .452 dia. 255 grain. I don't think they turned out half bad.

    I firmly believe that you should only get treated by how you act, not by who or what you are!!

    One of my first "successful" coats looked similar. It was Eastwood Silver Vein.Click image for larger version.

    I cast a bunch Jan 24 and PC'd them next day. I washed them all in acetone and mixed them in a #5 ice cream bucket. That's two things I haven't done until yesterday.

    I coat with a color that I like and works. For these I shake then just flash in the oven (powder molten plus 5 min) then shake in large Ziploc while still fairly hot with Mica make up powder (from Amazon) that will compliment the base coat . Use less than you think you need and then only half of that.Then back into the oven for a proper cure
    The second photo is just a compression spring around the resizing stem to make resizing a breeze
