Custom pait question

I need to know who the manufacterer of the "acid etched" look or crystalized look paint is. I saw it on Trucks TV a couple weeks ago and forgot who makes it. I also heard the halloweenking mention it before. Does anyone know who makes this paint or what it is called?

i beleive you are looking for House of Kolor Marblizer paint . it comes in 6 colors : silver white, gold blue, red-red, blue pink, lilac-lilac, green - blue, plus clear -neutral additive. it has samples on pg 12 of their color chart, check it out at HOK paint dealer first as color book is $35. my webpage : www.art4urhog.com the pow-mia bike is all marbleized with many candy colors over top
good luck jw art

I have used the marbalizer a few times and this is not what I am looking for. I did find what I am looking for, it is called exotic crystal. It is pretty neat, you should check it out. Thanks.

xotic

samples look good just send for info from them. my concern is their caution in their own tech sheet says stuff has mind of its own & no control factor of pattern other than doing whole project at one time. effects are very similar to marblizer once you get to learn it. i will try it tho. jwart
