Formulating our own mirror reflective water based paint. Combining state of the art leafing aluminum particles with automotive refinish chemicals. We are trying both BASF Glasurit 90 and PPG Nexa Autocolor #alchemypaintworks #paintformula #mirrorpaint #mirrachrome #chromefx #silvernitrate

BYK-Gardner Additives and instruments #byko #drawdown #drawdowncards Opacity Drawdown Charts, Sag & Leveling Test Charts, Display Charts. We are using these for our color matching process and record keeping. @altanaag

For sensitive projects we use triple washed zero silicone clean room gloves. We recently learned that surgical gloves only means the organisms and particles on the glove are dead but clean room gloves have practically no particles on them. The inexpensive gloves employ silicone and other additives to get them out of the mold faster so they can make more gloves. Clean room gloves are slow drying and use no chemicals to speed the production process. These do not come in a cardboard box but double vacuum sealed bags. We are your paint nerds. #clearcoat on plastic #alchemy #alchemypaintworks #cleanroom #noresidue #noprints #lintfree

#workshopartfabrication @andrewpharmer and Vincent DiDonato head up this art foundry doing great projects. Thanks for the introduction @frankbenson.info 🙏🏽

Working against the clock once more.
