Talking They're after me golden hookah...

So as promised here are some pics of the stem I spray painted with a golden metallic paint and coated with 3 light coats of poly. It did not come out as shiny as I wanted it to (but then again it was a $4 can of spray paint vs. God knows how much for electroplating ), but I am happy with the outcome.

Anyways, here are the pics (sorry for the cell phone quality):

I'm 100% sure if you go over the gold with a clear coat, I'll be shiny like you were hoping. Not to mention it'll prevent the paint from chipping. Looks good!

Thanks! Actually the poly is the clear coat (polyurethane), and that's exactly the reason I applied it, so the paint won't chip, crack or be rubbed off. It isn't a dull matte finish by any means, my lighting just sucks and the phone cam doesn't help, just not as chrome shiny as you'd get from gold plating, I'll try to update with a few pics with flash when I find the digi cam

ah, so you mean more metallic, not so much shiny. Regardless you did quite a good job.
