I've done some pearls on other things, and they didn't remotely look like fireflake paints.
And B+Bogus has some convincing looking repaints there with colored flakes.
The green sample flakes I have to try ff green are green all over.
But not quite large enough flake to emulate Nortons ff green.
There are larger flakes available, still thinking about it...

Recoated the interior of the tank with phenolic resin and while doing so, got a wee little drop of acetone on the tank. Lifted the paint off 2cm x 3cm. No worries, thinks I. The painter left me some touch up paint and the tank could use a little refreshing. So 2000 grit to smooth the edges, spray on the touch up paint and .... there you go. But not as planned. The newly touched up surface, now 5 cm x 10 cm for some magical reason reacts like paint remover. So little wee touch up now needs a complete paint job (and might as well get the side panels done at the same time).
Paint; leave it for the pros. You'd think I'd learn. D Andrews has left Toronto. Any other suggestions?
